Pondicherry Peppercorns (1/2 ounce)
Pondicherry Red Peppercorns are treasured for their unique flavor, aroma, and appeal. You are certainly more likely to find these at specialty food and upscale health food stores than at any chain grocery store. They are also more readily available at brick and mortar stores in France. Red peppercorns, or true red peppercorns, are priced at a premium due to their extravagancy and scarcity. Piper nigrum is the scientific name for pepper and it comes from the Piperaceae family. Don’t get these confused with Pink Pepperconrs which are actually part of the cashew family, and therefore not true peppercorns.
Pondicherry peppercorns taste sweet and fruity with a nice warmth that will turn spicy slowly and linger on the tongue. Use anywhere you would use black pepper.
These red peppercorns come from Pondicherry, India.
