Black pepper process
Harvesting at the correct stage of maturity is essential to produce high quality peppercorns. The pepper spikes are picked when one or two of the berries on the spike begin to turn orange and the berries are hard to touch.
Sorting / threshing
After harvest the pepper berries are removed from the stems either by hand or by beating with sticks (threshing) or by using a minim mechanical thresher.
Scalding / blanching
The pepper berries are blanched by placing in boiling water for about 10 minutes which causes them to turn dark brown or black in about an hour. Blanching accelerates the drying and browning of the berries.
This is the most important part of the process as it affects the quality of the final product. To obtain the full black color of dried pepper, it needs to be dried in direct sunshine. This can be achieved by drying in the sun, using a solar drier or in a combined solar drier and wood burning drier. Pepper berries should be dried until they are black and winkled and have a final moisture content of 8-10% to prevent the growth of mould.
Pepper is graded by size, color and relative density. Color grading is done by hand. Small machines are available for grading pepper according to the size or relative density of the peppercorns.
Packaging and storage
Whole peppercorns are packaged in moisture proof packets and must be stored in moisture-proof containers away from direct sunlight. The stored peppercorns should be inspected regularly for signs of spoilage or moisture. If they have absorbed moisture, they should be re-dried to a moisture content of 10%.
