Black Pepper, Cracked
Origin: South India, Indonesia.
Black pepper the unripe fruit that is harvested from a flowering vine known as Piper nigrum. Once the berries are picked, they are fermented and dried. Once the peppercorns brown and wrinkled in appearance, they are ground. The result is a mixture of the peppercorn's light colored core and dark skin. Pepper is the world's most popular spice and comes in various forms ranging from whole to fine ground. Black Pepper is the spiciest from unripened berries and contains a sharp, pungent flavor that adds a spicy tang to any dish.
Cracked black pepper is a larger grind that results in sizable pieces of peppercorn, rather than a grain-like texture. This provides the most intense flavor and aroma of the ground variations. It brings an incredibly robust taste to all dishes.
