Green peppercorns are picked before they mature, steam cooked, and air-dried to preserve the color. Mellower in flavor than black or white peppercorns, green whole peppercorns are a must-have for the serious gourmet.
Green peppercorns are mildly tart and full of heat but lacking in complexity (because they're not mature when picked), which makes them best suited for lighter foods, such as vegetables, chicken, and fish, and light sauces.
