Other Common Names
White Peppercorns, Decorticated 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.
White peppercorns are made by soaking the nearly ripe (yellow to pink) peppercorns in water, then rubbing them to remove the pericarp before drying them. White pepper is hotter than black due to the piperine content, however it lacks the “oily” taste found in black pepper.
