Our Organic Fine Ground White Peppercorns are a great alternative to ground black pepper in white or light-colored foods. We harvest and process certified organic peppercorns without additives or preservatives to ensure that nothing interferes with the natural flavor, and then finely grind them to a smooth, light tan powder.
White pepper and black pepper are actually the same fruit, sourced from a flowering vine. The only difference between them is how they are processed. Black pepper is formed when the fruits are picked when nearly ripe and are then roasted or dried out in the sun until the hulls turn dark black. For white pepper, the hull is removed during a cleaning process before it’s dried out.
Since the essential oils are found in the hull, black pepper has more of that lemony, woody, characteristically peppery-pungent aroma. White pepper has less aroma, but a far sharper pungency and heat.
India is currently the world’s largest producer of peppercorns, and experts believe the plant originated in the Southern Indian state of Kerala.
- Great for white cream sauces, gravies, potato dishes, or salad dressings.
- Excellent for seasoning poultry and fish
- Pepper loses its flavor when cooked for long periods of time, so add close to the end of cooking time
