Pepper Picks for Autumn!
Pepper Piper nigrum has a distinctive pungent taste and aroma. It is a versatile spice pepping up most any dish and enhancing your pickling blends.
It stimulates the taste buds and is a bonus for those looking to reduce their salt intake. It stands in nicely for salty seasonings and blends well with most herbs and spices. While we have a variety of gourmet pepper corns, one to get acquainted with this month is LONG PEPPER ~ Piper longdum. It is used like our black pepper in India, and increases the bio-availability of
turmeric. It also has many medicinal values. With a slight taste of chocolate it works well with your favorite turmeric drinks.
