Black pepper aroma

Black pepper offers a sharp, penetrating aroma and a unique characteristic woody, piney flavor. This spice is obtained from the dried berry of the pepper vine, and its rich, dark color will add to the appearance of any of your signature dishes.

Black pepper uses

Black pepper is best suited for marinades, seasoning hearty meats, or making rich and creamy salad dressings. 

Whole black peppercorns work well with pepper mills and grinders to deliver robust, freshly-ground flavor. 

How about a pinch of ground black pepper in chocolate deserts?
