Our Christmas Peppercorn Blend is a festive mix of green and pink peppercorns. It provides a fresher, lighter and more floral flavor, compared with traditional black pepper, and can be substituted for black pepper in any recipe.
Green peppercorns come from the common pepper plant (Piper nigrum), a flowering tropical plant that produces tiny berries. These can be harvested and processed at various stages of their maturity to achieve different flavors and colors. Green peppercorns are harvested long before they reach maturity, and as a result have a light, aromatic, fresh flavor.
Pink peppercorns are, in fact, not true peppercorns at all, but the dried berries of an unrelated plant that grows in South America. The plant produces tiny, aromatic, rose-hued berries that have delicate, slightly floral undertones to their peppery flavor.
This colorful blend brings together two lighter-tasting peppercorns, both of which have herbal and fruity undertones for use anywhere you would use whole, crushed or ground black pepper to add a delicate, fresh, fruity pepper flavor.
Excellent as part of a rub for meat, poultry or seafood
Great in vinaigrettes and creamy salad dressings
Whole peppercorns can be tied in a cheesecloth bag and dropped into simmer stocks, soups or stews toward the end of cooking to add flavor
