PEPPERCORNS - WHITE
WHITE PEPPERCORNS (Muntok) - The whole subject of peppers is complicated. White pepper, grown in Indonesia, is the final version of pepper. It's the ripest of the peppers with a distinct flavour but little aroma. White pepper is processed by soaking the peppercorn in water for up to a week. The outer black covering is washed off leaving the white inner core. White pepper is preferred where black specks would be unattractive, e.g., white sauce.
