Frontier Organic Black Peppercorns
Pepper lends satisfying heat and bite to most any dish (and it's great for salt-free diets). It works well in combination with other herbs and spices, too, and is commonly found in spice blends. One of the world's most popular spices, black peppercorns are actually unripe green fruits (berries) that have been sun-dried after fermenting. Black, white and green peppers all come from the woody tropical plant Piper nigrum.
Organic Black Peppercorns

Our hunt for premium quality organic black pepper led us on a treacherous 2.5 hour Jeep ride. We were winding up a single lane trail into the mountains along the Malabar Coast in West Ghats, India -- a region known for its pepper. The farming community we arrived at made it worth the trip! Numbering more than 2,000, these tribal farmers harvest small plots of less than one hectare each. Their large, colorful Tellicherry peppercorns are renowned as the best in the world.
