Olivier Rœllinger's words

Pink peppercorns have seductive color and a sweet, fruity flavor with a hint of heat.


This pink peppercons comes from a small vertuous domain surrounded by wood in the South of Madagascar. The pink peppercorn is organic and harvested by hand between May and June. 

The term pink peppercorn refers to several different varieties in the Shinus shrub species. Shinus are native to South America and are members of the Anacardiaceae family. The trees rarely grow higher than 7 meters tall and the berries are extremely delicate. It is a challenge to harvest whole berries without scars. Shinus terebinthifolia or terebinthifolius is the most common type available. 

Madagascar, Brazil, Peru and Reunion Island are the main producers of peppercorns. Their use in cuisine dates back to the 1970’s. Pink peppercorns are used to season red meats and gravlax fish preparations.
