Pepper

Pepper is one of the most popular spices in the world and it is used as a flavoring in both cooking and as a condiment. Peppercorns come in a couple of different varieties and flavors; black, white, green and pink peppercorns.
Black peppercorns have the most pungent and rich flavor of all. They are green peppercorn that have been dried from weeks until they turn black and wrinkled.
White peppercorns have a less earthy, pungent and rich than the black peppercorns. They are black peppercorns with the husks removed and is used to flavor light colored sauces without changing the color.
Green peppercorns are fresher than the others with a lighter more delicate flavor. They ate normally pickled in a brine or vinegar and jarred or canned and sometimes freeze-dried.
Pink peppercorns are often available in a brine or dried (my choice), they have a mild, sweet aromatic flavor.
A mix of all four of these Peppercorns creates a fresh peppery flavor for any dish, mainly delicate fish dishes.
