Black Pepper Fine Grind
Ground Black Pepper Fine Grind
Peppercorns set to a coarser grind, can impart big pepper flavor on food and while that is delicious, it can occasionally be too much. Fine Grind Pepper offers a mellower perspective. You still get the woodsy pine of black pepper and the forward heat from the chemical compound piperine, but the heat is gentler and the pine, less sharp. Without the rush of heat pepper’s earthiness comes through, carried in on the floral citrus aroma. Volatile oils compose the sensory characteristics of taste and smell, and measure between 1% and 2.5% of black pepper by weight. Fine Grind pepper is also known through 30 mesh or -30. Spread out over a greater surface area created by smaller grinds, the oils and piperine soften. Black Pepper Fine Grind stands the greatest chance of losing impactful flavor on a shelf, so we grind small batches through the week to protect the flavor.
The United States is the world’s #1 consumer of black pepper, with 18% of all global pepper imports coming to American shores. We currently consume $1.1 Billion in black pepper, but projections indicate the black pepper market in the US will grow to $2.8 Billion by 2027. Much of that number is due to the enormous demand for black pepper in the American processed food industry, but the volatile oils have purported circulatory benefits and are increasingly in demand in the cosmetics industry.
Tips From Our Kitchen
Use this with sauces you’d like to add a mellow, peppery boost to, like Hollandaise. The fine grind makes it ideal for barbecue rubs and vinaigrettes, where it will add to the ensemble and not dominate the flavor. This is great for adding as part of a final garnish on vegetables, so sprinkle some on broccoli just before serving, and this pepper is great on French fries. It adds depth to the nest of buttery onions that we serve pierogies in. Toss bacon with maple syrup and Black Pepper Fine Grind and then bake, for a sweet, peppery breakfast treat you won’t be able to stop eating.
Our black pepper is sourced from India, Indonesia, or Vietnam, depending on the time of year.
