Whole30 Approved USDA Certified Organic Non-GMO Non-Irradiated

Species: Piper nigrum

Appearance: Peppercorns are the dried berries of a tropical perennial vine with aromatic, green oval-shaped leaves and greenish-yellow spikes. The immature fruits are harvested once they turn red and then sun-dried until they are devoid of moisture, giving it a slightly wrinkly spherical shape.

Typically used: Freshly ground

Origin: Black peppercorn has been cultivated for thousands of years in Southern Indian and Sri Lanka. This particular variety comes from the Indian state of Kerala on the Malabar Coast.

Flavor: Complex, warm, citrusy, mildly dark, slightly bitter

Aroma: Woody and balanced with notes of citrus and berries

Culinary uses: Black pepper is so well-known globally, that it has been used in almost any dish you can think of. It is most often used to enhance other flavors and add a mild spicy kick to any dish. It actually acts a digestive aid and enhances the nutrient absorption of other foods it’s paired with. It is used in everything from salads to beverages to soups, stews, roasted meat, desserts, and more. This pepper is more mild than our Tellicherry Peppercorns and works best with rich, savory braises.
