Usage Suggestions

Pink Peppercorn Fruity, sweet, and soft, these Brazilian pink peppercorns are a delight. In cooking they add both a fruity, peppery flavor and bold, beautiful color.

Sweet and mild, they make a colorful addition to many dishes: salads, eggs, seafood, and white sauces.

Most notably, pink peppercorns are used in fish, poultry and game dishes, most often to flavor the delicate sauces for these recipes.

Since they are too soft to be ground in a pepper mill by themselves, they are sprinkled whole or lightly crushed in most dishes.

Used as a garnish, they make a stunning color presentation

Background

Dried pink peppercorns are not from the pepper vine, but come from the Schinus molle, species commonly known as the Peruvian peppertree.

These shinus peppercorns have a pine-like flavor which resembles Juniper and is different from true Pink Pepper. 

Although a peppercorn is the dried fruit of a plant from the genus Piper, pink peppercorns came to be called such because they resemble peppercorns, and because they, too, have a peppery flavor.

These berries are grown primarily in the Brazilian state of Espirto Santo, located along the southeast coast just north of Rio de Janeiro.

From a small mastic-tree, the little green berries grow in tiny clusters of white flowers that form in autumn, becoming bright red before harvesting.

The pink pepper tree, Schinus terebinthifolius, is in the same family as cashew and mango trees, and may trigger an allergic response in people with allergies to tree nuts.


Health Benefits

Allergy Statement: Pink Peppercorns are members of the cashew family so they may cause allergic reactions including anaphylaxis for persons with a tree nut allergy.
