Reviews for Thrive Market Organic Black Whole Peppercorns Bag

Why You’ll Love Organic Black Whole Peppercorns Bag

In cooking, few other elements possess the power to enhance, balance, or even salvage a recipe the way spices can. When used right, they can take the palate to pleasantly surprising places. Everybody needs spices in their pantry—so naturally, we wanted to add them to Thrive Market’s growing collection of products. Introducing Thrive Market Whole Black Peppercorns Bag that allows you to always have fresh stock ready for your grinder.

Anyone who loves to cook knows that black pepper is as ubiquitous as salt in a kitchen. A few turns of a pepper mill can add enormous depth of flavor and subtle spice to a dish. But long before black pepper became salt’s sidekick, it was a really big (and expensive) deal. Luckily, you no longer have to traverse the globe to find this vital spice, because we’ve done it for you.

As with other Thrive Market products, all of our spices are organic, high-quality, and carefully sourced. Even better, our unique and minimal packaging means we can give an incredibly affordable price tag on thyme, oregano, curry powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, ground cumin, basil, turmeric powder, and more.

A brief history of pepper

References to black pepper have appeared in early Greek and Roman texts (as far back as 1000 B.C.). This spice played a vital role in the international trade routes between India and the rest of the world. To protect these routes, spice traders often told exaggerated stories about the unimaginable hardships endured in order to obtain these valuable goods. After all, no explorer in his right mind would risk traversing the globe just to be confronted by a terrifying mythical monster guarding its caché of precious peppercorns.

Due to its scarcity and high demand, black pepper became a super valuable commodity—at one point, it accounted for 70 percent of the world’s spice trade. But as it eventually became more accessible, the prices dropped, and more people were able to enjoy it.

How Thrive Market Whole Black Peppercorns are made

Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is a flowering vine cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice or seasoning. When dried, the fruit is known as a peppercorn, or black pepper. Producing a high-quality peppercorn requires plenty of shade (canopies are draped over pepper gardens to mimic jungle cover) and meticulous care. Additionally, pepper plants require high temps, heavy and frequent rainfall, and well-draining soil, which is why it’s cultivated in many tropical countries such as Vietnam, Brazil, Indonesia, and Cambodia, to name a few.

A dash of spice makes everything nice

Black pepper is a staple in the kitchen, adding pungent, aromatic accent to savory dishes. You can add a dash of pepper atop your favorite salad just before serving, or use generously to season a steak. Add the peppercorns whole to brines and stock for the tiniest bit of heat, or sprinkle a bit on your avocado toast in the morning to add a bit of zest. Here are a few of our other favorite uses for black pepper:

Benefits of Thrive Market Whole Black Peppercorns

Black pepper can contains a number of vitamins and minerals, which may include the following:

  • Vitamins C and K
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Potassium
  • Fiber

Whole peppercorns vs. ground pepper

Culinary experts will choose whole peppercorns over ground black pepper any day—but why? The minute that protective husk surrounding the peppercorn is penetrated, it starts to deteriorate, losing much of its flavor and potency. The same goes for most other spices —keeping them whole until you’re ready to use them ensures you can maximize their shelf life. With Thrive Market Whole Black Peppercorns Bag, you can refill your grinder whenever needed for freshly ground pepper.
