Pink peppercorns are not related to actual peppercorns. They are the fruit of the Brazilian pepper tree and are grown in South America. These pink berries are soft and delicate with a papery, brittle shell. We only sell them whole, but they are easily crushed in a mortar. They have a fruity flavour that is slightly resinous, similar to juniper berries. Pink peppercorns go well with fish, seafood and poultry as well as fatty, gamey meats like duck or venison.
Pink peppercorns are very fragile and should be stored in a jar or another sturdy container.
