Along with salt, black peppercorns are a foundation ingredient of virtually all world cuisines. The peppercorns themselves are the dried fruit of a tropical vine. These little nuggets of flavour are used before, during and after cooking to add warmth, piquancy and an earthy sharpness. Our Saffronice whole peppercorns can be ground when needed to deliver a stronger, more pungent hit of warmth, than using a pre-ground powder, which can lose some of its potency from dissipation of the essential oils.
For something different, try a little freshly ground black pepper on strawberries – its warmth brings out the sweetness of the berry (trust us – you’ll be amazed)! Finely ground, it can also be added to a tuille or sweet crumb on a caramel or vanilla dessert, to balance the flavours and add a welcome depth of character to your dish.
Another must-have in any kitchen.
