Black peppercorns are the hand-picked fruits of a tropical vine known by the botanical name of Piper nigrum. Before the fruits or drupes are set out in the sun to dry, they are subjected to a hot water bath. Aside from removing impurities and debris, this process makes them dry faster because certain enzymes responsible for the glycation or browning of the berries escape cell membranes as they break down in response to the heat.
At the table, whole black peppercorns reside inside a peppermill, waiting to be freshly crushed onto salads, soups, steamed or grilled vegetables, meats and other foods.
