Green Peppercorn in Brine Recipe

There are different varieties of peppercorns (Piper Nigrum).  The spice that originated in India and has been used since prehistoric times. It’s hard to believe that this staple in just about every kitchen is something over which Wars have been fought!

The green peppercorns are actually unripe black peppercorns. They are fresher in taste and possess the same peppery kick and aroma. If you get them fresh, use them quickly as they don’t last very long. Commonly found in Thai and Vietnamese cuisines. Usually, green peppercorns are put in brine or vinegar to pickle them.

White peppercorns are black peppercorns that have had their black skin removed. They are less pungent and more earthy in flavor. Due to their white color, they are used more in white sauces or rices.

To date, the black peppercorn in the most widely traded spice, worldwide.

Coming back to Green peppercorns and their fresh aroma. These pretty peppercorns are not available everywhere and they are seasonal, so if you get some, you can make some special dishes quickly. When I get fresh green peppercorns I use some and I pickle the rest. Later, they can be used, crushed up to flavor sauces and in marinades. A great thing to have in any pantry!

    Hi, have just got everything together to do green peppercorns in brine but not sure when to add the salt, does it go into the saucepan with tumeric a d water?
    Thanks Jenny

    • Hi Jenny,
      Add it along with the vinegar, after removing the saucepan from heat. If you are using rock salt, add it along with the turmeric and allow to dissolve. Give it a stir to help dissolve. Thanks, I will edit the post. 🙂
