Herbs and Spices

Overview

Black pepper and white pepper are both produced from the berry of the vine Piper Nigrum. For Black Pepper, the berries are picked while still green, allowed to ferment and are then dried until they shrivel and turn a brownish black color. Black Pepper has a sharp, penetrating aroma and a acteristic woody, piney flavor. It is hot and biting to the taste. McCormick‘s pure ground pepper imparts the greatest amount of flavor due to its fine, consistent granulation, guaranteed to delight pepper lovers everywhere. The glass bottle is flavor sealed for freshness.
