Wednesday Food of the Day – December 23, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – BLACK PEPPER

This week we continue our theme of holiday spices to work into our meals.  Marked by its heat, sharp bite and complex flavor, black pepper is said to be one of the most popular spices in the world.

WHY BLACK PEPPER?

With its premier placement on dinner tables and starring role at restaurants — “Would you like freshly ground pepper with that?” — black pepper is appreciated for its invigorating pungency and ability to add a layer of flavor to dishes. It comes whole, cracked and ground and in many varieties, each with a varying degree of heat and flavor complexity.

Grind your own black pepper for a stronger flavor, aroma and gentle heat. A warning: Black pepper can overpower other flavors in a dish, so add with caution.
