Mixed Peppercorns

Not sure which pepper to use in a meal?  Use them all!  The berry of the pepper plant (Piper nigrum) is certainly an ubiquitous seasoning.  Shown here is a 5 pepper blend consisting of two types of  Black peppercorns, White, Green and even Pink "peppercorns".  This combination creates a flavorful and colorful blend which is very pretty in a clear acrylic spice mill.
 Almost every antique or vintage spice chest we have there is a spot saved for pepper.

I like the look of that mix! Pepper seems to be growing in popularity as a real ingredient and not just an afterthought spice. I like that!
