Pink peppercorn: An intense pink, almost red…a powerful colour that perfectly defines this pepper. Needless to say, it’s beautiful on the outside. It reigns with splendour – the pink peppercorn will captivate you with its strength. Who said pink is a weak colour?
The pink peppercorn, although not truly a pepper due to its origin, is brought to us from Latin America (Peru, Brazil, Argentina), although it’s so robust that it can be grown in many different places. From a strong tree that can grow to incredible heights, the pink peppercorn is a special seasoning, usually mixed with white and black pepper to enhance its flavour.
It definitely doesn’t lack spice but it’s by no means aggressive…don’t forget that we’re talking about the pink peppercorn. It’s sweet as well as powerful, critic but pleasant, somewhat like a pine tree. It makes a unique, exquisite addition to any recipe. One recipe it works best with is that including black and white chocolate.
Rich, special, innovative and great for our bodies.
– It has a great satiating power so helps you to lose weight.
– Aromatic in every pore of your being. When whole, you’ll be able to appreciate its smell but once ground…its pink powers are unleashed.
– A diuretic and laxative in the right measure without being aggressive.
– Helps prevent early aging thanks to its antioxidant powers.
– During autumns and winters, it’s your ally against colds and the flu.
– It’s an intense fungicide that helps eliminate fungi and bacteria (perfect for candida).
If you like the sound of the pink peppercorn and want to try it (or are already regularly eating it), you can include it in your recipes freshly ground or, alternatively, take advantage of all its benefits and prepare a rich infusion. Place a tablespoon of these berries into boiling water or mix into rich, red tea. You will definitely want to have it again.
In cocktail making, it’s grown to be widely accepted and caused a great deal of excitement…so much so that important tonic brands have already revised their recipes to make the pink pepper a key element. And that is why the pink peppercorn works so brilliantly in your gin and tonics.
