White, black and green peppercorns all come from the same vine. They grow in clusters (like grapes), and are harvested in various stages of growth. Green peppercorns are young when they are picked and dehydrated or preserved, with a resulting mild flavor. They have a zesty, perky bite to them, quite different from the black berries.
Green Peppercorns are mild with a cleaner, fresh flavor. They are essential to a majority of French cooking. Use green peppercorns to season turkey, add to chai tea recipes, flavor sauces, or create a blend of peppercorns to season your favorite grilled steaks. Mash in with garlic or cinnamon for a great flavor blend. Make your own spiced butter or add to cream to make a fresh and attractive sauce for fish.
