Part of the product range 'Whole Spices. White peppercorns, from organically grown plants in Sri Lanka. These are ready for grinding in either a pepper mill or a pestle and mortar - simply brilliant for adding flavour to any number of foods. Ground white pepper is sometimes used in Chinese cooking or in dishes like salad, light-coloured sauces or mashed potatoes, where black pepper would visibly stand out. White pepper has a slightly different flavour from black pepper due to the lack of certain compounds which are present in the outer fruit layer of the drupe but are not found in the seed.
