Pepper has been called “the king of spices”, and is used in every cuisine in the world for its unmistakable pungency, heat, and aroma. Pepper is so universally loved that explorers searched the world over for new sources, which is why so many other spices have “pepper” in their name. There isn’t a savory dish in the world that doesn’t include some pepper, and its many varieties allow the cook to experiment to get exactly the level of flavor and heady aroma that they want.

Whole black pepper (also called black peppercorns) is properly called Malabar pepper to differentiate it from other varieties, such as Lampong from Indonesia, or the highly-prized Tellicherry pepper; it has a rich strong aroma, dark flavor, and plenty of bite, or pungency. Can be ground or milled to be used in nearly every savory dish imaginable for its ability to complement most ingredients. Whole pepper is often used in brine, marinades, and pickling, or in slow-roasting meats or vegetables.
