Ground Black Pepper 50 gr. Sri Lanka
Black pepper is obtained from the unripe fruits of the plant. In order to clean them and prepare for drying, the fruits are quickly boiled in hot water. Heat treatment destroys the cell wall of pepper, accelerating the enzymes responsible for"Browning". The fruit is then dried in the sun or by machinery for several days. During this time, the shell of the fruit strengthens and darkens around the seed, forming a thin wrinkled layer of black.
