If you like the crunchy texture and intense flavour of chunky ground peppercorns, then you’ll want to have the best pepper and a good pepper grinder on hand. It’s not surprising that black pepper is the most widely used spice in the world. Good quality whole pepper adds depth of flavour and a spiciness to savoury foods that is hard to achieve with conventional ready-ground pepper. When pepper sits in a clear glass shaker in a café for months on end, it just isn’t worth using! If you’ve cooked with whole green peppercorns simmered in a dish, then you’re clearly a pepper lover. It’s an unusual, perky flavour, but as the green pepper dries out, shrivels and turns black, the flavours intensify.
