Spice & Co. peppercorn mix combines black, white, green and pink peppercorns. The mix is an interesting and fragrant alternative to milled black peppercorns. All peppercorns (green, black, white and pink) are in fact the same berry at different stages of maturity. Green Peppercorns are the unripened pepper berries. Black peppercorns are the picked green berries that have been dried. White peppercorns are the inner core of the berry. Pink peppercorns are the fully ripened berries.
Uses and Ideas! ©
Whilst often promoted for use in peppermills, the outer fibrous husk of pink peppercorns can clog the mechanisms of some peppermills. To avoid this, we recommend crushing the melange of different coloured peppercorns in a pestle and mortar and making your own pepper mix. Make in small batches and store in a sealed jar. Use to add fragrant heat to casseroles, braised dishes, meat loafs, hamburger, marinades and sauces. Combine the crushed peppercorns with a little sea salt and use as a dry rub for red meats before grilling.
