Product Description

USDA_organicseal_1in.gifOne of the world's most popular spices, black peppercorns are actually unripe green fruits (berries) that have been sun-dried after fermenting. Black Peppercorns lend satisfying heat and bite to most any dish (and it's great for salt-free diets). It works well in combination with other herbs and spices, too, and is commonly found in spice blends.

Black peppercorns are an essential spice to have in the kitchen and, at one time, literally worth their weight in gold. The tiny, dried fruits were considered so valuable that they were used as currency in some parts of India, where they were referred to as “black gold.”

This reference survives today in the expression “peppercorn rent,” which is a legal term that means delivery of a contract or goods for a nominal consideration, such as the transfer or gifting of property for one dollar as a token of good faith.

Whole fruit will keep fresh longer than ground black pepper. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

We grind fresh on a per order basis. Select from whole or fine (powder), medium (cut & sifted) or coarse (granules) grind above in the drop-down menu.
