Ground black pepper
Pepper black — a spice obtained from the dried unripe fruit of the tree vine Piper nigrum, pepper plants of the family. Black pepper — This unripe fruit from the fruit shell, quickly dried in the sun or on the fire. Dried fruits are covered with wrinkled black pepper or black-and-brown-skinned, have a circular shape. Bitter-burning taste and strong aroma of black pepper are explained by the content of essential oils in an amount of 1 to 2% and the alkaloid piperine — 5 to 9%. A good pepper sinks in water due to the high specific weight.
