Thamizhan Black Pepper

High quality, naturally cleaned black.

Other Common Names: Black Pepper, White Pepper, Green Pepper, True Pink Pepper. Botanical Name: (Piper nigrum)

Description & Use: All true pepper whether black, white, green or pink comes from the berries of a tropical evergreen vine. Black pepper are the green unripe peppercorns picked from the vine and dried in the sun. The natural enzymes in the outer husk (pericarp) of the pepper turn the green berries black on drying, forming the volatile oil which gives black pepper its characteristic flavor. Green peppercorns are picked green and either put into brine or freeze-dried to prevent the enzyme reaction from turning the pericarp black. White pepper is made by soaking the nearly ripe pepper in water, then rubbing them to remove the pericarp before drying them. White pepper is hotter than black, however it lacks the “oily” taste found in black pepper. Pink peppercorns are the fully ripe berries which are generally put into brine to prevent the enzyme reaction from turning them black.

Origin:India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Srilanka.

Description & Use: Named after its fetid aroma, Asafoetida is made from the white resinous sap, which turns dark brown on drying, of a variety of giant Fennel. It is a close relative to the now extinct ‘laser root’ that was mentioned in Roman cooking. Due to the difficulty in handling the resinous gum it is usually blended with some form of starch to make it manageable. Asafoetida is used mostly in Indian vegetarian meals, while the fetid flavor dissipates on cooking where it adds a garlic-like flavor with onion overtones. Always use in small amounts and keep very well sealed to prevent contamination of the flavor to other ingredients in the pantry.Contains: rice flour, gum Arabic, asafoetida resin, turmeric.
