I'm a convert

I've been making my own vanilla extract for over a decade and used to buy my beans based on reviews at a Infamous Global seller. Was never sure what I would get. Then I found this company! The beans were beautiful! Fragrant, moist but not too moist, easy to cut open to expose the seeds and each Bean was six to seven inches long. I'm a happy extract maker! 💝💃🥳

High Quality Vanilla - excellent customer service.

Slo Food group team takes great care of their customers. Received a broken bottle of Vanilla and it was immediately handled. Received my replacement bottle within 3 days.
This extract is used to make our Tahitian Vanilla Cakes!

The King of Spice, Whole Black Peppercorns

Botanically known as Piper Nigrum, black pepper is the world's most traded and consumed spice, and with good reason. It tastes great and adds a mild but spicy kick to many dishes. Its versatility is quite unmatched and it's hard to find a savory dish that doesn't at least call for black pepper to taste. Black pepper is used in cooking worldwide for so many recipes you could easily write a book on its many uses across the globe. Take the classic French Steak au Poivre—this dish certainly wouldn't be the same without black pepper. 

Here at Slofoodgroup, we find whole black pepper to be an especially phenomenal addition to red meats, stews, wild game (such as venison), salads, and roasted potatoes. We avoid using black peppercorns with fish and other seafood, using white pepper, instead. That's not to say you should pull black pepper from your favorite recipe if it suits your fancy–the glorious thing about culinary arts is every chef can take the liberty to add or eliminate ingredients as they see fit. A little salt and pepper go a long way in really bringing out the flavor in food that it would be a culinary shame to cook without. One might even say, food would be bland and boring without salt or pepper. 

Why buy whole black peppercorns from Sri Lanka?
How are black peppercorns different from other peppercorns?
Facts about Sri Lankan Black Peppercorns

Compromising less than two percent of the world's supply of black pepper, Sri Lankan black pepper is known for higher piperine content. Piperine is the compound that is responsible for the recognizable flavor and aroma of black pepper and it is the high level of piperine in Sri Lankan peppercorns which makes them superior in quality regarding flavor and aroma.  

Black peppercorns, like most other peppercorns, reign from the Piper Nigrum plant. Black, green, red, and white pepper are all the same berries from the same plant. The difference is found in when they are harvested and how they are preserved. To produce black peppercorns, the berries are picked before they have ripened. They are then briefly cooked and dried until the outer skin turns black. It's this process that produces that sharp, spicy flavor we all know and love so well.

Fresh pepper

Delivery was fast and product is very fresh. I love the freshness bag it came and the amount. Makes foods taste great. Will definitely buy again.

Sharp and potent.

Unlike the peppercorns I've gotten for other sources, these peppercorns have a sharp and potent flavor; the way pepper should be. The flavor is strong without being bitter and has a slight after burn that creeps up on you. You may want to use less of this pepper than you normally use as it is quite potent. But then, you may use more because it is so good. If you love pepper then this is worth trying.

Wonderful peppercorns

The peppercorns were fantastic. Perfect shape, hardly any broken in the bag, very aromatic with strong flavor. They are great for using in broths and soups as well as a pepper mill for grinding onto salads and food dishes.
