So, what is black heart pepper?

Black heart pepper is a pungent and spicy seasoning that comes from the dried fruits of the Piper nigrum vine. This variety of black pepper is known for its distinctively bold and intense flavor profile, with notes of earthy musk and warm heat that pair well with savory dishes. The name "black heart" refers to the deep, rich color of the peppercorns, which are typically harvested when fully mature and allowed to dry in the sun. Whether used as a finishing touch or incorporated into marinades and rubs, black heart pepper adds depth and complexity to a wide range of culinary creations.
