About Black Pepper Corns Organic

Black pepper vines (piper nigrum, of the family Piperaceae) are native to Kerala in Southern India. As a tropical plant, black pepper is also grown in places like Vietnam, one of the modern world’s leading producers. The vine’s fruit, the peppercorns, grow in locashng conical bunches. In ancient times, this “King of Spices” was used for everything from mummification rituals to currency. By Roman times, the spice trade brought ships directly to the Malabar coast and made the spice far more available, making pepper an invaluable seasoning for many dishes. Black peppercorns are fully mature and have the strongest flavor, which comes from piperine, a chemical compound found in the skin. (Piperine is different than capsaicin, the compound responsible for spicy heat in chili peppers.)

How to use

Black pepper has a fine, fruity, pungent fragrance with warm, woody, and lemony notes. The taste is hot and biting with a clean, penetrating aftertaste. It is neither sweet not savory, merely pungent. Although mostly used in savory foods, it can be used with fruits and is some sweet breads and cakes. It brings out the flavor of other spices and retain its own flavor well during cooking. It flavors rich stews, curries, is used to season simple buttered vegetables. It is key ingredient of the famous spice mixes Garam Masala, Baharat and Berber.

Black pepper rapidly loses its aroma when ground, so it’s best to buy whole berries and grind them in a mill. The flavor of fresh cracked pepper is more vibrant and powerful than pre-ground pepper.
