Green peppercorn is an unripe, fresh berry from the pepper plant, commonly used in cooking to add a mild, slightly tangy flavour to dishes.

Unlike black peppercorns, green peppercorns are harvested before they fully mature and are typically preserved in brine, vinegar, or freeze-dried.

They are a popular ingredient in various cuisines, especially in French cooking, where they are often used to create flavorful sauces and marinades.

Making green peppercorn sauce - 15 minutes

Peel and finely chop the shallot. If you like, you can crush the green peppercorns a little, but this is unnecessary.

Heat the butter in a small saucepan and fry the shallot and the peppercorns. After a few minutes, add the flour and cook briefly.
