Although referred to as peppercorns, these are actually grown on a tree and not closely related to the other varieties of pepper. They are rare and not easy to find. They have a fresh, sweet, pine-like aroma and flavour and a delicate, fruity, slightly tart flavour. They will add an elegant rich rose colour to enhance any culinary creation! Their bright pink husk contains a small brown seed and can be ground in a regular pepper-grinder, though beware of the delicate husk that can clog up the grinder.
HOW TO USE
Pink peppercorns don? have the same characteristic flavour and heat of regular peppercorns, but pair beautiful with fish and game dishes. They are a wonderful addition to fruit sauces, vinaigrettes and desserts. For something different, try as a tasty addition to dark chocolate candy!
