ORGANIC PEPPERCORN, black, medium ground
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Piper nigrum
Origin: India / Sri Lanka
Production: Black peppercorns are produced by picking the pepper berries when they are half ripe and then leaving them to ferment and dry, which causes them to shrivel and become dark in color.
Qualities: The pungent spiciness of black pepper is enjoyed all over the world in an array of dishes. Besides its culinary uses, black pepper (piperine) is considered to have carminative, diaphoretic and diuretic properties. Due to its antifungal and antimicrobial properties, ground pepper is often used to prevent food spoilage. There is evidence that it can also act synergistically with other spices to enhance their medicinal potency such as boosting bioavailability of curcumin from the spice turmeric by up to 2000%. Some suggest that the outer layer of the peppercorn stimulates the breakdown of fat cells and that black pepper may be an excellent source of manganese, vitamin K, copper, iron, chromium, and calcium.
Common Use: Black peppercorns pair well with an immense range of foods, herbs, and spices. Cracked or ground peppercorns are convenient but whole peppercorns retain their flavor a bit better.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Ground organic peppercorns is a basic seasoning which should not be difficult to find, nor too expensive, but it is so in local stores. It is a necessary companion for ground turmeric, which I use as a nutritive seasoning when cooking beans (chick peas and lima beans) or grains (farro wheat and barley).
I've been buying pre-bottled organic spices for a long time now. I heard about the sunflower oil and order a small bag of this ground pepper with my first shipment. I was completely blown away by how fresh this ground pepper was. It was flavourful and added a wonderful depth to our cooking. If OM foods carries a dried spice, I won't buy it pre-bottled again.
