Brined Green Peppercorns

Large square green peppercorns in brine
Green peppercorns are unripened black peppercorns with a delicious and zesty flavor. These brined green peppercorns can be used much like capers, their flavor is bright, sharp, and concentrated. Use them to add unique flavor to cream sauces, salads, or sautéed dishes like scallops fish, poultry, and, steak au poivre.


Green peppercorns have a zestier flavor than black peppercorns. Young, green peppercorns spoil quickly, so they are often brined or dried to preserve them. The brine gives them a delightfully tart and salty flavor, making them especially delicious with fresh seafood. Crush them with the side of a knife and mince them to add intense green peppercorn flavor to sauces and marinades. You can also throw the whole peppercorns into a sauté, for a gentler release of flavor.
