Pink peppercorns are the dried berries of the shrub Schinus molle, also known as the Peruvian peppertree. They work well with fruit dishes and other desserts. They have a delightful spicy-sweet flavor with citrus undertones. This gives them a different flavor profile than the more familiar black peppercorns.
The light, sweet flavor of pink peppercorns is ideal for accentuating light sauces and fish while adding a splash of color.
