Black Peppercorns

Black Peppercorns from Ceylon are renowned for their high volatile oil content that makes the spice very pungent. Sri Lanka has been famous for its range of spices and essential oils.

DRUERA markets Black Peppercorns in 2 oz , 4 oz and 16 oz pack sizes which could be purchased online by clicking the arrow pointing down next to the pack size.

Spices were the magnet that drew foreigners to Sri Lanka - first the Arabs, then the Portuguese, the Dutch, and finally the British who made her a colony of their far-flung empire. In flavor and fragrance, Sri Lanka’s spices stand in a class of their own.

As pepper berries ripen, they turn from green to yellow to red. If the end product is to be black pepper, the berries are picked while still somewhat immature and then dried. The entire berry or peppercorn is used. As the berries dry, the skin wrinkles and turns deep brown or black. When ground, the peppercorns yield a powder of light and dark particles.

Our black pepper is grown in the wild and could be considered organic. Once harvested it is sun-dried and vacuum-packed to preserve the essential oils.

Thoughts on Cinnamon, Black Peppercorns, and Nutmeg

Quite a few years ago I started out ordering Cinnamon, and then added, nutmeg, & black pepper. The spices are fresh, well packed, and are delivered promptly. I have ordered a few other products on occasion as well. I would not hesitate to order any item they offer, as they are a quality Company. It doesn’t get any better than DRUERA. They are a Seven Star Company, they are that good.

Great spicy spices - and gentle soaps.

So happy to be back with you. My favourites are above all the Cinnamon, the Black pepper and Turmeric, Cardamom pods and vanilla.
