Organic white peppercorns are hotter and spicier

The differences in white peppercorns and black peppercorns is not just in the colour. White peppercorns are from the same plant as the black variety (Piper Nigrum) but they are left to ripen and then their skin is removed.

White pepper is much hotter and spicier than the black variety. Black pepper has a richer more complex earthy flavour.

White pepper is often preferred in dishes where you dont want the black specs of black pepper showing up. White pepper is very popular in French and Chinese cooking.

Organic white peppercorns can be added straight to meals whole if you like a punch.  For a more even flavour you can grind them freshly in a pestle and mortar or  grinder.

White Pepper is such a staple ingredient in households but its amazing nutritional content is often overlooked.  We add organic cracked black pepper to almost every meal.  If you use white pepper and oil with organic turmeric powder at the end of cooking then it helps to release the curcumin from the turmeric.

They are very versatile, adding a richness to meals and a spicy kick if you use enough! If you prefer other varieties of organic pepper check out our range, we stock all kinds of organic pepper in many shapes and sizes!
