Green Peppercorns are the berry of the plant Piper Nigrum, which is the plant which gives us White, Green and Black Peppercorns. They are harvested before they reach maturity, are milder in flavor than white or black peppercorns, and slightly sweet.
Green Peppercorns are good in sauces served over rich game meats. They can also be crushed, combined with butter and brushed on meat or vegetables before grilling. Green peppercorns lend a more sophisticated, earthy, hot flavor to dishes. They work well in dishes where they will play the lead role. They are used in Mediterranean cuisine. You will find them in recipes for seafood, brines, and dijon mustards.
Peppercorns are one of the most commonly used spices. The first documentation of Peppercorn use is found in South Asia, from the 4th B.C. Since then, pepper has found its way all around the world, adding peppery spiciness to just about every cuisine.
We also carry Black Peppercorns, Medium Grind Black Pepper, Coarse Grind Black Pepper, Cracked Black Pepper, White Peppercorns, Ground White Pepper, Sichuan Peppercorns, Pink Peppercorns and a Four Peppercorn Blend.
