Product Description

DESCRIPTION

All peppercorns, be they black, white or green, come from the tropical vine belonging to the plant family ‘Piperaceae’. Although the pepper plant had its origin in India, a large demand for the spice has necessitated commercial cultivation in several parts of South-East Asia as well.

When fully ripened berries (from the pepper vine), with their outer covering removed, are allowed to ferment naturally in the sun – the result is creamy, white peppercorns.

Pepper has a sharp, hot and biting taste. It’s a warming spice. It is one of the oldest and important spices in the world. So important, that in ancient times it was used to pay taxes. In 410 A.D, when the Huns lay siege of Rome, 3000 pounds of pepper was demanded as ransom.

India holds a supreme position in the production of pepper. Two of its celebrated varieties are ‘Malabar Garbled’ and ‘Tellichery Extra bold’. The finest Indian pepper is grown in the monsoon forests of the Malabar coast in Kerala.

USAGE

Pepper is extensively used in the wintry cuisine of North India, to impart warmth and pungency to veg. dishes. In the South, it is used as a flavouring spice in non-veg preparations. Pepper incidentally is an important spice in the Indian four-spice classic ‘garam masala’. Pepper corns boiled in water along with basil leaves, are said to relieve chest congestions and asthmatic condition.
