Black peppercorns are harvested from the pepper plant (Piper nigrum), and is without doubt one of the oldest and most widely used spices in the world. After flowering, the fruit, which are more precisely called drupes, are collected by hand and dried on mats in the sun until they reach a dark purplish-black.
Our 60-mesh black pepper is the finest in terms of shake that we offer. In addition to culinary use, finely ground black pepper is—brace yourself—an old-fashioned laundry additive. The “berries” of the plant contain a high degree of piperine, a chemical that reputedly helps to prevent color loss in clothing when added to the wash. For a full load, plan on using 1-2 tablespoons.
Note: The term "mesh" refers to the coarseness of ground pepper, which can range from a fine shake to large granules. (The term literally refers to the size of the holes in the mesh screen through which the spice passes while it is ground.) The higher the number, the finer the pepper. Similarly, a mesh of 12 indicates a grind between coarse and cracked.
