Our "TGSEB" (Tellicherry Garbled Special Extra Bold) are the highest grade of organic black peppercorns available, selected from only the plumpest berries—those that produce a rich and complex pepper flavor. Tellicherry black peppercorns are truly multipurpose—they are used to enhance the natural flavors of a tremendous variety of foods. Coarsely grind onto meats, vegetables, beans, salads, and pasta..

Botanical name: Piper nigrum L.

One of the world's most popular spices, black peppercorns are actually unripe green fruits (berries) that have been sun-dried after fermenting. Black, white and green peppers all come from the woody tropical plant Piper nigrum.
Pepper berries are at first green; they turn red as they ripen. The stage at which they're harvested (and whether or not they are husked) determines the color of the resulting spice. Black pepper is harvested while the berries are still green--before ripening. Sun drying turns them dark brown and wrinkly. White pepper results when the berries are picked fully ripe and then husked and dried. Green peppercorns are picked before ripening and preserved before drying. Pepper's rich history can be traced through the records of ancient Rome, the monastic records of the Middle Ages, and the logs of early traders and explorers. In 1180, A Guild of Pepperers-- the most important guild of the time-- was in existence in London. Often equated with money, pepper has been used for taxes, rent, dowries and ransom. When Alaric the Goth besieged Rome, gold, silver, and pepper were demanded as ransom. (The gold and silver were easy enough to come by, but the pepper gave them some trouble.) The quest of pepper largely defines the history of the spice trade.

Suggested Use

For the freshest aroma and taste, grind whole peppercorns as needed--or offer a peppermill at the table. Freshly ground pepper's especially good in salsa, salads, on pasta, and in soup. Whole peppercorns are also used in pickling, marinades, meats, and soups. (Tie in a cheesecloth bag or small strainer for easy removal.)

Awesome!

You can feel the difference from the cheap corporate isle irradiated black pepper. Frontier is the best. Grind it fresh, feel the difference, recognize what true black pepper tastes like, you'll hate the corporate isle in the grocery store. For your own benefit!

This black pepper is just okay

Posted by HealthyIsHappy on Jan 04, 2013

Bland compared to organic peppercorns I have bought in the past. I have to use 3-4 more times than I would expect to get the flavor I want. I wouldn't buy this particular Frontier product again.
