Let's take a moment to appreciate the king of spices!
Black Pepper is the most important and widely consumed spice in the world, accounting for 20% of the world trade in spices. Salt and pepper are an iconic duo; however, while both can certainly enhance flavour, black pepper offers many other proven benefits such as: improving appetite & nutrient absorption, controlling dyspepsia, and providing a rich source of vitamins A, E, and K, as well as several minerals.
Our black pepper is organically grown and offered directly from farms in Wayanad, India - a UNESCO designated world heritage region on the Malabar coast of India's Kerala province. The region's rich soil and mountains offer the perfect terroir (or growing conditions) for many nutrient-rich herb and spices to flourish. The peppercorns harvested here are widely considered the finest in the world.
What Does It Taste Like?
Our Organic Wayanadan black pepper is bold, aromatic, and rich in essential oils that produce a flavour with hints of sweetness, citrus and pine. Wayanad has two monsoon rainy seasons that lash the mountains here and blasts it with wind. Many believe Wayanadan Black Pepper gets its unique flavour profile from the rainwater that rushes down from the lush biodiverse mountains down onto the peppercorn farming areas.
How Is It Used?
Use black pepper as an ingredient in recipes to add flavour and spice to poultry, vegetables, salad dressings, soups, stir-fries, pasta, and more.
Some dishes are pepper-forward that take full advantage of the incredible flavor profile of black pepper, such as steak rubs that can be created using black pepper as the primary ingredient.
