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.
Black pepper enhances the flavor of cheeses. Ground black pepper is also excellent paired with other herbs and spices used to season meats, vegetables, salads, soups and stews. Try a dash on top of a glass of tomato juice.
This table grind pepper is the type of pepper you'll find in shakers on restaurant and diner tabletops. The pepper flakes are slightly larger than fine grind black pepper, yet aren't quite as noticeable as coarse grind black pepper.
