This is a blend of the most aromatic and popular peppercorn spices. It contains red, black, white, and green peppercorns and allspice. The allspice adds a sweetness to the blend. The peppercorn blend is the definitive gourmet table seasoning for everyday meals or discerning dinner parties. Black, white and green peppercorns all come from the common pepper plant (Piper nigrum), a flowering tropical plant that was originally native to India. The plant produces tiny berries or "drupes." These berries can be harvested and processed at various stages of their maturity to achieve different flavors and colors. Peppercorns have far-reaching cultural and historical significance. They were sought-after by Europeans as far back as ancient times, and as a result, often drove exploration and commerce. As early as the Roman Empire, they were bought, sold and taxed. The lure of pepper and other spices brought explorers from all over Europe to India during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Peppercorns were sometimes accepted in lieu of money in dowries, taxes and rent. A stimulant, peppercorns have traditionally been used as a remedy for digestive complaints including indigestion and constipation. The chemical that gives peppercorns their hot flavor, piperine, may assist in chemical functions within the body. In Indian Ayurvedic medicine, peppercorns are also used to stimulate appetite and to treat colds, coughs and sore throats. Jamaican allspice is not only used for its culinary depth and versatility, but for treatment of digestive ailments, and is known to improve appetite through its active amount of phenol eugenol, a gentle numbing compound that was historically used by dentists. Its warming effects are also often used externally to relieve chest infections, arthritis and flu symptoms.
