The pink peppercorn, while similar in appearance to black peppercorn apart from the colour, is closely related to cashews. The “molle,” or pink peppercorn tree, was considered a sacred tree to ancient Incans. Indigenous populations used all parts of the tree, including the pink peppercorn fruit, as herbal solutions to health needs. With a mildly fruity and peppery flavour, you can use Pink Pepper in place of ground black pepper to flavour meats, sauces, and other dishes.
