So, what is pimenta-branca?

Pimenta-branca, also known as white pepper, is a popular spice that is widely used in many cuisines around the world. It is made from the ripened berries of the Piper nigrum plant, which are soaked in water to remove the outer layer before being dried and ground. The resulting powder has a slightly milder flavor than black pepper, but it still packs a punch with its subtle heat and earthy aroma. White pepper is often used in lighter-colored dishes where the color of black pepper might be too dark, and it is also a common ingredient in spice blends and marinades.
