Black pepper is the dried unripe berry from the pepper plant with a very pungent and fiery taste, although ground pepper loses much of it flavor and intensity.
Available in whole or cracked peppercorns or ground into a powder. Ground pepper will stay fresh for about 3 months in a cool, dark place or can be kept in the freezer.
Best used directly on food or towards the end of the cooking process.
Commonly used as a basic, natural seasoning for venison, steaks, meats, poultry, dressings, vegetables, sauces and most cooked dishes.
