One of the most common, yet versatile, household spices that can be added to almost any dish for flavor and a slight heat. It is a must-have spice for any kitchen. Before pepper can be in the form of grind, ground, or mesh pepper, it has to start as a peppercorn. Peppercorns come from the flowering vine, Piper nigrum, which is grown in tropical locations. Peppercorns grow into a bright green fruit that then have to go through the process of being cooked and sun-dried. The drying process is where the peppercorns change into a dark brown and black color which causes the outer layer of the fruit to wrinkle.
