What is Black Pepper?
Known popularly around the world as a traditional spice, black pepper is sourced from a flowering vine plant, Piper nigrum. Its dried fruit, known as peppercorns are a common spice found in kitchens all around the world. Dating back as far as the Ancient Romans through the Middle Ages, black pepper was thought of as a valuable commodity that was traded as currency in some cultures.
Steam distilled from whole peppercorns, black pepper oil’s aroma is distinctly crisp, warm and spicy.
