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.

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.
