White Pepper Vs. Black Pepper
Black pepper is the berry of the pepper plant, and white pepper is the seed. After they are sun-dried, black pepper retains its signature heat, but white pepper becomes milder. Black pepper also lasts longer than white pepper; but it’s best to buy whole peppercorns rather than ready powders. Use black pepper in dishes that need a flavor boost. Use white pepper for lighter, earthier soups to add a mild heat.
Black pepper is a staple in American kitchens. In fact, take a seat at any restaurant and you’ll find salt and pepper shakers! But did you know that white pepper also exists? It’s widely used in Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese cuisines.!-
