The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.
White peppercorns are fully-ripened berries that are sun-dried after their red outer skin is removed. Gourmet cooks often use white pepper to flavor white sauces and other light-colored dishes because of its color and more delicate flavor.
Botanical name: Piper nigrum L.
The subtle, less biting flavor of white pepper can be used a bit more freely than black. White pepper is available both whole (good for marinades or pickles and peppermill blends) and ground-- for use in a shaker or in light-colored sauces or fish, chicken and potato dishes.
