Unlike White and Green Pepper, Pink Peppercorns are not a derivative of the Black Peppercorn but are from a different plant altogether. They have a fresh, pine, citrus and sweet aroma and have a slightly pungent, resinous taste with spicy and fruity notes. Pink Peppercorns are popular as a Mixed Pepper in pepper grinders in combination with black, green and white whole peppercorns. Pink pepper is rarely used on its own but adds to the complexity of the aroma and flavour of other ground peppers. Pink Pepper is recommended for use with fish and poultry and also works well with stronger game meats, often used in the same way as Juniper Berries.
Allergen advice: Pink Pepper corns are not peppers but a member of the cashew family and may effect people with nut allergies.
