Ingredient - Pepper

Updated December 16th, 2021

Pepper is the most popular seasoning in the world.

It has been an important and precious commodity throughout history, not only for flavoring food, but also serving as currency, or being demanded as ransom in both the East and the West.

The ancient Greeks and Romans cooked with it.

Peppercorns were so esteemed in twelfth-century England that a Guild of Pepperers was founded among London merchants. Marco Polo was impressed by the large quantity of pepper used in thirteenth-century China.

As with all spices, Pepper should be stored in small airtight jars. Be sure to label and date your jar.

Keep spices in a cool, dark place, as heat, moisture and sunlight will reduce its flavor.

Usually found in the Spice Aisle.
