Our Peppercorn Collection features 3 different types of peppercorns, each in a glass jar with a removable grinder top.
Zanzibar Black Peppercorns (1.7 oz. glass grinder-top jar)
Black pepper grows in bunches like grapes, on a climbing vine. Most black peppercorns are harvested while still green, and the drying process gives them their distinctive dark skin. Ours are allowed to ripen longer on the vine before being hand-picked and sun-dried, resulting in a rich chocolate-colored pepper berry with dense wrinkles and a bright, fruity spiciness.
Ea Sar Black Pepper (1.8 oz. glass grinder-top jar)
Our Ea Sar black peppercorns are grown by Dūng and Thanh, young Vietnamese farmers, using regenerative integrated agricultural techniques. We loved their Purple Peppercorns so much that we bought their entire peppercorn harvest this year. The Ea Sar Black Pepper is a combination of two heirloom pepper varieties, Vĩnh Linh (grown by Dūng) and Trâu Xanh (grown by Thanh). Together, the two types of sun-dried peppercorns hit a perfect balance of fragrance and flavor.
Fermented White Pepper (2.0 oz. glass grinder-top jar)
Our Fermented White Pepper comes from a family farm on the island of Bangka, grown by a farmer named Pak Sugiri and his son, Ilham. They're picked fresh and then fermented according to traditional methods, using the fruit of the fresh peppercorn. Highly prized in Indonesia but rarely found in the US, they add a deep umami flavor and funk to everything they touch.
My boyfriend loves putting pepper on things, so much so that it became a bit of a joke between us. He only ever used the basic black pepper from the grocery store, though, so I decided to get him this set for Christmas. We both love it so much! Each pepper has a distinct flavor and character and they're all delicious. Every time we eat there's a conversation about which pepper, or combination of peppers, we should use. I'm writing this review at the end of March and I'm shocked by how much we've already gone through. We'll definitely be reordering when we run out!
Fabulous, will continue to order!
Although all 4 pepper they are each so different! We’ve had such trying them all and describing their nuances.
Really enjoying the peppercorns.
I got these as part of several spice gifts from Burlap and Barrel. We have been using them everyday.
