Black pepper whole

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 (and 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: Whole, non-ground black peppercorns are relatively large and can be removed from the food with the aid of a spoon. Thus, by removing the peppercorns once the dish is cooked, you can give your meal a rich aroma while controlling the spiciness level. Ideal for stews, soups, sauces and marinades.

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.
