Absolutely Organic: Peppercorns and mixes

At one time Pepper was so valuable that is was used as a currency, like gold. Today while pepper is no longer such an expensive commodity, it is still valued for the pungent spiciness it adds to food.  Black pepper berries come from Piper nigrum, a woody, climbing vine and grow in spike-like clusters. Immature berries turn black after they are harvested, fermented and dried. Green peppercorns also are made from immature berries but they are prepared by freeze drying them to retain their natural green colour.  As the berries ripen they turn white and become milder in flavour. White pepper is especially useful in white sauces when the pepper is not supposed to show!  Piper nigrum comes from the Indian subcontinent. Pink “pepper” comes from a totally different plant and from the other side of the world.  Schinus molle grows in Peru and is known as the Peruvian Peppertree. These berries are far more expensive than those of the Piper nigrum.

You can pre-order for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas OR make arrangements with us to have your order shipped. We strive to keep the prices in our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Products with variable sizes like meat and cheese products will reflect approximate prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate with you about shipping costs and any pertinent stock or price updates. Once you have said you wish to proceed we will send you an order summary. You will then be able to pay by eTransfer or call us with a credit card payment.
