Today we choose to put forward an original producer to make your christmas meal more tasty!
The blackcurrant pepper is a creation of the « Association des Producteurs de Cassis de Bourgogne » that proves us that blackcurrant is not just used in the preparation of jams or crème de cassis. The blackcurrant is also the very aromatic bud, requested by the perfumery for a long time and now by the gastronomy.
Blackcurrant producers have discovered this new spice, the blackcurrant pepper, drying the buds before reducing it to powder.
"Its flavor is both woody and fruity. It can be used interchangeably in sweet and savory products, "commented Vincent Bertrand, producer in the Châtillonnais and president of the cooperative Coteaux Burgundians.
