Kerala, a state on India’s Malabar coast, has been growing some of the world’s finest peppercorns for hundreds of years. These peppercorns are sourced from a single estate in the Malabar region that uses traditional and ethical methods of farming in keeping with export standards and are grown naturally without any chemicals or fertilizers for an unbeatably strong, fresh flavour. My Malabar Bold peppercorns winner of Great taste awards 2017, comes straight from the farmer picked just before they are ripe, sun-dried and then sterilized with steam to preserve the strong, aromatic oils. They have a sharp heat with fragrant notes of citrus and pine and an earthy finish. Use for seasoning and flavouring soups, meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and salads.
