Once you've tasted the difference between regular pepper and freshly ground peppercorns pepper, you won't be able to go back. Our Late Harvest Black Peppercorns are vine ripened until red before drying giving them a ruby hue and a unique fruity spice that we grind fresh on nearly every dish.
Whole Black Peppercorns
Quang Tri, Vietnam
Known as “black gold,” peppercorns are one of Vietnam’s largest exports. Berries are often picked green to prevent insects and birds from eating mature fruit, but ours are vine-ripened an extra two weeks under the careful watch of our farmers—a ruby-red hue signals peak fruity and floral notes, as well as a smooth, lingering heat. They source from farms in Quang Tri, where Roots of Peace trains villagers to replace live minefields—more bombs were dropped in this province than in WWI and WWII combined—with this flourishing crop.
- Grind or crack the peppercorns right before you use them like in a pepper grinder over a finished dish.
- Refrain from toasting this spice as it will lose much of its fruity complexities.
