What is pepper?
Pepper is the fruit of a tropical tendril plant and the most famous spice alongside salt. The leaves of the pepper plant are slightly heart-shaped, leathery, and green. They reach a length of approximately 20 cm. Besides, it bears white flower spikes with a diameter of 3-15 cm and 50-150 single flowers. The plant is mostly hermaphrodite and therefore pollinates itself. After fertilization, the peppercorns, which belong to the stone fruits, emerge from the pretty individual flowers. The pepper plant bears the spice for the first time in the third year, and from this point onwards, the pepper can be harvested twice a year.
To properly store your ground spices, I recommend you to pour them into spice jars with a screw cap. When stored in a cold, dark, and dry place, these prevent the aroma of ground products from being lost.
Please make sure to sterilize your spice jars in boiling water for five minutes before filling to prevent contamination of the product.
