McCormick Gourmet Organic Coarse Ground Black Pepper is carefully sourced from unripe pepper berries that have been harvested and sun-dried for seven to ten days. Its hot-biting taste, sharp aroma and coarse grind texture make it ideal for rubbing on grilled or roasted meats. The robust flavor and texture of coarse grind black pepper is the perfect addition to any savory dish. Black pepper makes a bold presentation on a thick, grilled steak or green salad and is a go-to seasoning for soups, braises, marinades and sautés. But don’t stop there! You’ll also find it in recipes for baked goods, from biscuits and breads to spice cookies and chocolate desserts. If you prefer a more forward pepper flavor in your dishes, choose coarse grind over fine.
