Bold flavor with a clean, hot bite.
This White Indonesian pepper from Sumatra is prepared according to traditional fermentation methods.
After harvesting, the pepper berries are placed in sacks while the pericarp, or outer layer, ferments. It is rinsed and changed several times. Once the pericarp is removed, the remaining white peppercorn has a concentrated bite. Our white pepper is unbleached and still retains a slightly off-white hue.
White pepper is the perfect addition of hotness without changing or overpowering the flavor of your dish.
Sumatran White pepper is flavorful enough to add to most recipes. It is the pepper of choice in Chinese cuisine. In Southeast Asian cookery, white Indonesian pepper is paired with kaffir lime and lemongrass. White pepper is ideal for cream sauces and other light colored dishes like mashed potatoes.
