Oryx Black Peppercorns
Most experts will recommend that you cook pepper as little as possible; it’s the freshly ground ones that are most beneficial. Invest in a good pepper mill, keep it on the table and top up with Oryx Black Peppercorns when needed. Freshly crushed pepper can be added in almost anything — from salads, soups, to pastas, even with strawberries.
A pinch of black pepper added to any recipe works as more than just a flavour enhancer. This king of spices is known to offer a number of health benefits while providing an excellent depth of flavour to dishes. Black pepper helps promote weight loss, improve digestion, relieve colds and coughing, boosts metabolism and treats skin problems.
How Oryx Desert Salt first began
Oryx Desert Salt is a Cape Town brand committed to supplying ethically harvested, sustainable and renewable products that enriches the flavour of your food and have an exceptional taste, while reducing their carbon footprint. Their founding CEO, Samantha Skyring decided to walk 120km over 7 days through the Namib Desert to the Skeleton Coast in July 2000. This experience and memorable encounters with Oryx Gazella (Gemsbok) had a tremendous influence on the creation of her new brand for desert salt from the Kalahari. Read more about her fascinating one week walk, and how the Oryx became her symbol of her Kalahari experience, as well as other amazing initiatives she’s involved with here.
Keep your pepper fresher for longer
A waste-less tip: To take maximum advantage of the benefits of black pepper, it’s important that you store it in the best way possible. It’s recommended that you buy whole peppercorn and crush it at home. This not only makes sure that the spice retains its flavour, but also that it lasts longer. Store it in an airtight glass container, and always in a cool, dry, and dark place.
