Pink Peppercorns

Spice | May 20, 2014 | By

A pink peppercorn is actually not a peppercorn at all…..but the dried berries of the  South American (native to the Peruvian Andes) shrub “Schinus Molles” that tastes peppery. Blood lines aside…its a great peppery addition that gives bright ruby colour and a certain fruitiness as well as that familiar “peppery” taste.
