Pink peppercorns are in fact not peppercorns at all. They have a delicate, fragrant, sweet, and initially mildly piquant flavor. They are reminiscent of a mild citrus zest and sweet berries. Pink peppercorns go especially well in fruit sauces, vinaigrettes, and desserts. These peppercorns have a rich rose color that adds an elegant appearance to any cuisine. Make sure to add these at the end of the cooking process or as a garnish so as to not destroy their delicate flavor.
