Historical and Traditional Perspective
Spotlight on Black Peppercorn
This perennial vine has stout stems, white flowering spikes and green to dark red fruit. Black, white and green pepper are all made from the same plant, taken at different stages of maturity and processed differently. The black peppercorns are picked green and dried. Pepper has been one of our most highly prized spices since earliest trade with the east. It was used as a currency during the siege of Rome in AD 408 and its high cost motivated the Portugese to find a sea route to India. Pepper stimulates saliva and gastric juices, aiding digestion. It has been used throughout the ages for flatulence, colic, rheumatism, headaches and diarrhoea. Pepper comforts and warms a cold stomach. It is antibacterial and insecticidal.
