What is it?

Pink peppercorns aren’t actually peppercorns; they’re the berries of an unrelated tree. Mildly sweet and aromatic, they don’t contribute a lot of flavor. They’re often added to peppercorn blends for color.

How to prep:

Pink peppercorns should only be used in pepper mills as part of a blend because their soft interiors could clog the mill’s grinding mechanism if ground solo.

How to store:

Store them away from heat and light (like any spice), and use them within a year.
