White pepper results when the Piper nigrum berries are picked fully ripe and then husked. With less intensity than the black version, this pungent spice lends great flavor to white sauces, cream soups and fish dishes.

Botanical name: Piper nigrum L.

PepperBlack, white and green peppers all come from the woody tropical plant Piper nigrum. Pepper berries are at first green; they turn red as they ripen. The stage at which they're harvested (and whether or not they are husked) determines the color of the resulting spice. Black pepper is harvested while the berries are still green-- before ripening. Sun drying turns them dark brown and wrinkly. White pepper results when the berries are picked fully ripe and then husked and dried.

Pepper's rich history can be traced through the records of ancient Rome, the monastic records of the Middle Ages, and the logs of early traders and explorers. In 1180, A Guild of Pepperers-- the most important guild of the time-- was in existence in London. Often equated with money, pepper has been used for taxes, rent, dowries and ransom. When Alaric the Goth besieged Rome, gold, silver, and pepper were demanded as ransom. (The gold and silver were easy enough to come by, but the pepper gave them some trouble.) The quest of pepper largely defines the history of the spice trade.

Peppercorns WhiteSuggested Uses:
The subtle, less biting flavor of white pepper can be used a bit more freely than black. White pepper is available both whole (good for marinades or pickles and peppermill blends) and ground-- for use in a shaker or in light-colored sauces or fish, chicken and potato dishes.
