Whole Black Peppercorns - Kaufmann Mercantile

Originating in India, and harvested from Piper Nigrum, a flowering vine, black pepper is one of the first known culinary spices. It appears in almost every cuisine, and compliments a wide variety of flavors. It has become the most common seasoning after salt. Pepper contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which can have a synergistic effect when added to various foods, making it a perfect component to your daily diet. 


Use & Care

Less obvious uses include tea steeped with cracked pepper for treating colds, and adding a little cracked pepper to enliven body scrubs. 

For best flavor, keep whole until moments before adding it to dishes.

Production & Design

The dark, shrively appearance of black pepper comes from cooking the berries during the curing process. This brings out their aromatics, and tempers their warming quality.
