Pink Peppercorns

Sourced from South Africa and sold per gram

You may be surprised to learn that pink peppercorns aren’t really peppercorns at all. They’re actually the ripe berries of the Peruvian and Brazilian pepper trees. However, they’re the same shape and size as regular peppercorns, as well as possessing a peppery flavour. Pink peppercorns are actually a member of the cashew family, which means anyone with a cashew allergy would be better off avoiding them

These peppercorns have a strong aroma of pine and citrus, with herby, floral and citric flavours. When using pink pepper for the first time, it’s important to note that they are spicy in a way more reminiscent of chilis than actual pepper. Be sure to go in knowing what to expect.

These flavours pair excellently with ingredients that overlap aromatically. This includes herbs and spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, saffron, ginger, mint, basil, bergamot, lavender, lemongrass, and rosemary, as well as edible flowers like alliums and rosebuds. Pink peppercorns can also be used to enhance the flavours of citrus fruits, strawberries, pineapple, and pomegranate, as well as dairy foods like butter and cream, and even bacon, beef, chicken and white fish.
