Whole black peppercorns are an essential spice to have in the kitchen and, at one time, literally worth their weight in gold. The tiny, dried fruits were considered so valuable that they were used as currency in some parts of India, where they were referred to as “black gold.”
This reference survives today in the expression “peppercorn rent,” which is a legal term that means delivery of a contract or goods for a nominal consideration, such as the transfer or gifting of property for one dollar as a token of good faith.
