Black Peppercorns start life as green berries grown on the pepper vine. A luxury item during Medieval Europe, it was once reserved for the wealthy. It's known to be the inspiration for the coining of the Dutch phrase "pepper expensive," which is still used today to describe an expensive item. Remarkably it is one product that has remained popular globally for over 4,000 years.
Crack some Black Peppercorns over any dish to give it a distinctive bite to any culinary creation. Its nuanced flavour makes it a perfect base for a steak rub or sauce. Punch up soups, stews & marinades & use it to build bold stocks or poaching & pickling liquids.
