Oregano, Mexico

Mexican Oregano has a much stronger flavor than the common Italian and Greek oreganos found on grocery store shelves. Mexican Oregano’s flavor has quickly gained popularity with some chefs in recent years for its strong flavor and subtle sweetness that are unique to this oregano from south of the boarder. Mexican Oregano’s flavor is still very similar so it is a good substitute for the more traditional Mediterranean oreganos as long as it is added at about half the amount called. Add it to Mexican and southwest recipes calling for “Mexican Oregano” at the amount called for to add a potent oregano flavor.

Peppercorns, Green

Green pepper is from the same fruit as the black, but is harvested before they mature. Green pepper is milder with a cleaner, fresher flavor. Green peppercorns can be mashed with garlic, cinnamon or to make a spiced butter or with cream to make a fresh and attractive sauce for fish. It is often used in white sauces rather than black pepper, which would give the sauce a speckled appearance. It’s best ground directly on to food. With hot food it is best to add pepper well towards the end of the cooking process, to preserve its aroma.

Peppercorns, Pink

The pink peppercorn is the semi-ripe berry of the schinus bush and not a true peppercorn. Often used as a component of “gourmet pepper” for grinding we discourage this as the
green and black peppercorns easily overpower this sweet and mild spice. Try grinding it fresh with cumin and thyme as a seasoning for swordfish or chicken. We also like it in cabbage slaw or along with a light basil pesto.

Peppercorns, White

White peppercorns start out the same as the black, but are allowed to ripen more fully on the vine. The outer shell is then removed by soaking the berries in water until the shell falls off, or by holding them under flowing spring water, yielding a whiter, cleaner pepper. White pepper is less pungent. It is often used in white sauces rather than black pepper, which would give the sauce a speckled appearance. It is best ground directly on to food. With hot food it is best to add pepper well towards the end of the cooking process, to preserve its aroma.
