Four Peppers Mix
Black, green, red, and white pepper are all produced from the same plant. The difference in their color is due to different harvest times and processing afterwards.
Black pepper is dried fruit of the Piper nigrum, which is cultivated exclusively for the production of this spice. White pepper is its inner bud which is harvested later, while green pepper is made from buds picked before ripening.
Blending four different types of peppers creates a different flavor, with more depth and range, than using one type of pepper alone. Try using mixed peppercorns in recipes like steak or chicken au poivre.
