Black Pepper and White Pepper
Today, not many people use black pepper in their cooking. People prefer white pepper instead. White peppercorn is the same plant as black pepper but with all of the outer skin removed during processing. Black pepper, on the other hand, has been left in its natural state. Both types of peppercorns are harvested from Piper nigrum plants.
Black and white peppercorns are both the fruit of a plant in the family “Piperaceae.” Black peppercorns are dried unripe berries of Piper nigrum, the true pepper plant. White peppercorns are the mature but unripe berries of Piper album, also called “white pepper vine” or “Madagascar pepper vine.”
The two plants look similar in that they have a climbing habit, and compound leaves with three leaflets. The difference is in when the berries are harvested. Black peppercorns are picked when green, then dried. White peppercorns are picked at full maturity, then soaked and rubbed to remove the outer hull.
Black peppercorns tend to be larger than white and have a stronger flavor. The flavor is often described as “hotter,” but that doesn’t mean it has more actual heat in it (the Scoville scale rates black pepper at 30,000-50,000 SHUs and white at 0-10). It just means that the flavor tends to linger longer in your mouth.
The history of pepper is long and storied, with trade routes that criss-crossed the ancient world. It was prized for its medicinal properties as well as for its flavor, and even today it is used by many people to help aid digestion.*It’s also one of the most commonly used spices in the world, with an annual production that is more than half a million tons.*
Pepper has been so popular throughout history because it offers such a unique flavor when compared to other spices. However, because of its high price during the Roman Empire and even into the Middle Ages (reaching as much as $18 a pound) there were many people who were unable to afford this amazing spice and were instead left to use common herbs. They too, however, soon came to appreciate pepper’s unique flavor, so they started taking measures to grow their own pepper at home.
**It was the Romans who first took an interest in growing peppers in order to save money and have a steady supply of this wonderful spice available to them.*The Romans grew both black and white peppercorns, although it is said that black pepper was more popular in Rome itself.*They would plant these spices in pots or on windowsills inside their homes and then keep them watered frequently.*So as long
Black pepper is the most popular and widely used spice in the world. It is also the oldest!
White pepper is made from green or unripe black pepper. The ripened fruit of this plant is a round, reddish berry (the peppercorn) which contains an oval seed with a brownish-yellow coat. White pepper is made by drying the ripe fruit without removing the seed inside. This berry can be crushed to produce black pepper, or left whole to produce white pepper.
Black peppercorns are made from unripe berries that have been allowed to mature and dry on their plants until they turn black. The complete drying of these berries will cause them to crumble easily. Black peppercorns are smaller than white ones due to their shorter growing period (about two months) and before harvesting, they are soaked in water for about a week in order to soften them and make them easier to remove from the vine.*
