Whole Black Pepper from Ceylon is renowned for it’s high volatile oil content
Sri Lanka has been famous the world over for her range of spices for centuries. Spices was 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 flavour and fragrance, Sri Lanka’s spices stand in a class of their own.
As pepper berries ripen, they turn from green to yellow and then 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 as such could be considered organic. Once harvested it is sun dried and vacuum packed to preserve the essential oils.
