White pepper is the ripe seed of the pepper plant from which the outer, darker colored skin is removed. The removal is achieved by having the peppercorns soak up water for a week and then having the softened skin removed.
Ground white pepper can be used in creamy white sauces, in dishes resembling salads, in meat and in mashed potatoes. The flavor and smell is very different from black pepper, as it has a lighter flavor, but a stronger smell.
