Black pepper ground

Description: Black pepper is the mature fruit of one of the 1,000 plus varieties of pepper that can be found worldwide. It has the strongest aroma and also the fullest flavour. The characteristics of each pepper (aroma, flavour, strength, essential oils, etc.) are what categorise it, according to the international organisation ASTA, into different qualities.

A. Yiotis SA applies strict criteria to select and import the best black peppercorns in the world. Their quality stands out because:

  • they have more flesh (not thick shell)
  • they do not contain any impurities
  • their purity rate reaches 99.5%
  • they are tested for their bacteria content
and because for so many years you have chosen them and loved their intense aroma and unique flavour.

Uses: Black pepper goes with everything, which is why it’s widely used in cooking. Use it with all types of meat, including chops, steaks, burgers, meatballs, beef roll and turkey. Try it with all vegetables, in salads, sandwiches, marinades and sauces to give all your dishes a flavour boost. Ideal with baked feta cheese and stuffed courgettes, giving them flavour and bite.

Combinations: The all-purpose spice. It can be combined with all spices and herbs. Even so, its flavour blends even better with allspice, cardamom, chilli, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, garlic, ginger, turmeric, paprika, parsley, rosemary, sage, oregano and thyme.
