All about black peppercorns

Peppercorns start life as a berry harvested from the pepper plant. Black, white and green peppercorns all come from the same plant, while pink peppercorns are a different species. Black peppercorns represent the ripest and most mature flavor of these pungent little berries, and are dried to create one of the most beloved spices in the world.    

Health benefits of whole black peppercorns

Everyone knows grinding our own peppercorns can enhance a meal. Pepper is one of the most popular spices in the world because of its wide versatility, and also because it is always in season. But peppercorns are also good for you: They’re high in manganese, antioxidant vitamins and other nutrients, as well as essential oils and minerals, and have been revered for centuries for their many benefits.

Peppercorns have the potential to help promote good digestion by stimulating your body’s natural hydrochloric acid production and getting your stomach ready to handle food. Black pepper is a great addition to almost any dish, and is even used in beverages and desserts in some cuisines.

How to use black peppercorns

Even though black pepper is readily available pre-ground in the grocery store, the spice loses a lot of potency when it is stored this way. Grinding your peppercorns fresh releases the full oil and flavor of the black peppercorns and contributes the fully developed flavor profile of black pepper to your dish.
