Peppercorns have been highly valued throughout history. They were so rare in the past that they have even been used as currency. In the 15th century, European ships undertook expeditions for the main purpose of finding alternative trade routes to the Far East in order to bring back the prized peppercorns. It is hard to imagine food today without this essential spice.

Peppercorns are native to India and Indonesia and are now cultivated in tropical regions around the world. This climbing tree is usually grown on other trees such as palm, betel, or mango because its cordlike stems need support. This tree bears grapelike clusters of fruit in its third year and continues to yield fruit for six to seven more years. There are three types of peppercorns that all come from the pepper plant known as Piper Nigrum. Green peppercorns are the unripened seeds from this plant. They have a fresh flavor that is less pungent than black and white peppercorns. Preserved in brine, these green peppercorns are frequently used in cheeses and pates. They are also used in sauces and purees, soups, and are essential for making peppercorn steak.
