Black Pepper Spice
For thousands of years, black pepper has been a staple ingredient all over the world. Often referred to as the “king of spices,” it comes from the dried, unripe fruit of the native Indian plant Piper nigrum. Both whole black peppercorns and ground black pepper are commonly used in cooking. Besides adding flavor to foods, black pepper may act as an antioxidant and offer a variety of health benefits.
