Recipe For Pink Peppercorn Sauce

This pink peppercorn sauce works perfectly with beef, pork and chicken. The subtle nuances of the peppercorns works fantastically well with the Weltevrede 1912 Cabernet Sauvignon. Head straight on to the recipe ♥

About a year ago I got a new routine at gym. It involved a lot of exercises using my knee joints and after a few months my knee started clicking when ever I bent right down. I kept changing my routine to see which exercise was causing the painful snapping of the ligament but my knee got worse. My acupuncturist told me that there was inflammation around the knee, but treatment for that resulted in no improvement. I went for Bowen Therapy and strangely that made it worse and so off I went back to the chiropractor. I had been to see him in March but when I was woken up by the pain in August I went back. He stripped as much of the inflammation as he could, but after 2 treatments I went for what is always my last resort. I am not keen on being injected with cortisone, but there was no ways I could go on holiday with my knee so bad. I had an injection into the knee and that in itself was painful. I have bruised the cartilage which will take about 3 months to heal. I got a new routine at gym as I cannot do any pinch movements using the knee joint. Thankfully I can walk and swim so all is good. There was more good news for me as I was asked to collaborate with Weltevrede wine estate to create recipes that will go well with their wines. The first wine that I used was the limited release Weltevrede 1912 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a wine to celebrate the people who are part of the estate. I wanted to enhance the spice aspects of the wine, and using the white pepper nuances on the palate, I created a pink peppercorn sauce. This brings out the berries in the wine and makes for a perfect accompaniment.

  6. I also have not seen pink peppercorns here but I am sure I could make it with mixed peppercorns, right? Or are pink peppercorns a lot milder than green and black. So sorry hear to hear about your knee. I always say it is not the age its the mileage… lol take good care of yourself.

  18. I’ve only had peppercorn sauce in restaurants before but would love to try my hand at it. For me, even though I’m only 36, I still love swimming the best for exercise! It’s an awesome workout and so easy on my joints. Okay, I do feel a little old. Running on the road, no way!
