Other Common Names
Green Pepper. Botanical Name: (Piper nigrum)
Description & Use
All true pepper whether black, white, green or pink comes from the berries of a tropical evergreen vine. Black peppercorns are the green unripe peppercorns picked from the vine and dried in the sun. The natural enzymes in the outer husk (pericarp) of the peppercorns turn the green berries black on drying, forming the volatile oil which gives black pepper its characteristic flavour.
These green peppercorns are picked green and freeze-dried, (a similar process to the peas that re-constitute quickly) to prevent the enzyme reaction from turning the pericarp black. Use in recipes that call for fresh green peppercorns, or peppercorns in brine.
