Pink Peppercorns

Contrary to their name and appearance, pink peppercorns are not actually peppercorns, but berries. They can be found at gourmet stores either freeze-dried or packed in brine or water.

Whole pink peppercorns are odorless. Once ground, however they have a delicate sweet, yet peppery, taste and aroma. They are often used along with white and black peppercorns in a clear pepper mill for appearances. They are also commonly used in sauces, fish dishes and as a final dusting for presentation. Pink peppercorns in large quantities can cause illness, so use sparingly.

Once opened, refrigerated water-packed pink peppercorns will last for about a week. Berries packed in brine can be refrigerated for 3 to 4 weeks. Freeze-dried pink peppercorns should be stored in an airtight container and kept in a cool, dark place for about 6 months.
