WHITE PEPPER

Black and White Pepper are both obtained from the small dried berry of the vine Piper nigrum. For White Pepper, the berry is picked when fully ripe. The outer layer of shrunken skin is removed, leaving the dried, grayish-white kernel. It has a milder, more delicate flavor than Black Pepper.

Although White Pepper is milder flavored than Black Pepper, it is generally characterized by a sharp penetrating aroma and a hot pungent taste. Its flavor can be described by piney, woody, and terpeney notes. White Pepper also has a skunky/barnyard note which helps to differentiate it from Black Pepper.
