Like its table companion, salt, black pepper brings out the flavor of foods. In particular, black pepper enhances the flavor of cheeses. Ground black pepper is also excellent paired with other herbs and spices used to season meats, vegetables, salads, soups and stews. Try a dash on top of a glass of tomato juice.

what else you should know

ground, organic
black peppercorn

Black pepper is obtained from a flowering tropical vine native to southern India and China, although the plant is naturally distributed throughout other regions of Indonesia as well. Our organic ground black pepper comes from Sri Lanka.

The most popular variety of peppercorn is black pepper, which is essentially the sun-dried fruit of this climbing plant. The curing process begins when the hand-harvested peppercorns are picked while still yellow on the vine. The peppercorns are then subjected to heat via a boiling water bath before they are laid in the sun to dry. The result is a shriveled, beady texture and dark color. Because the hull of the fruit remains intact, black pepper has more pungent flavor than other peppercorns.
