Not true peppers, pink peppercorns are dried berries from a small mastic tree related to the rose bush. They are called peppercorns because of their similarity in shape, size, and even flavor. The flavor is most similar to that of the black peppercorn, but it is milder and more acidic with a hint of sweetness. They go well with many rich meats and are commonly used to flavor delicate sauces to accompany seafood and pork. Not only is the flavor great, they add a pop of vibrant color to an otherwise pale dish.
