Oak Smoked Cracked Peppercorns are a labor of love. Coarsely cracked and smoked, these peppercorns define artisanal. The process is quite labor-intensive and takes several hours to complete. They are slow-smoked with aged oak bourbon barrels to achieve just the right amount of smoke. Use these to finish a dish as these peppercorns have a nice bite with a crunchy texture.
You might want to use these peppercorns on everything, but they are particularly delicious with:
- Eggs of all types.
- Steaks and chops.
- Soup, stew, braises.
- Cheeses, especially mozarella, feta, or cream cheese.
- Flavor macaroni and cheese.
- Try on fresh fruit like pineapple, oranges, or grapefruit.
- Use just a dusting on chocolate (especially chocolate truffles), caramel, or lemon desserts.
