These Indonesian black peppercorns have been ground into standard medium sized grains (approximately 30 mesh) for every day use. Grains are of a consistent and uniform size necessary for approximating amounts in recipes, evenly distributing flavor, and providing a beautiful finished appearance.
Black pepper has a full and robust clean flavor with a hint of woodsy piperine heat that provides a zesty spice flavor without the lingering heat of the capsaicin in red chili peppers.
Black pepper is the unripe fruit of the Piper Nigrum plant that is harvested, allowed to dry, either through sun-drying or a heat drying process, with the fruit and skin on. The dried skin provides additional subtle and complex flavors that are missing from the also popular white peppercorns.
One of the most common spices in the modern world, ground peppercorns are found alongside salt almost everywhere as a table spice. Use it on almost anything that needs a little kick of flavor, from vegetables to eggs, meats to fish, soups to steaks, let your tastebuds be your guide.
In recipes, approximately five shakes of a pepper shaker with ground black pepper spice, medium grind, is equal to approximately 1/8 of a teaspoon. Keep pre-ground pepper in a cool, dark, dry place. Use within three months for the best flavor.
