Green peppercorns are a staple of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. They can be used whole or chopped, much like capers, to add a new dimension of flavor to salmon, fried rice, eggs, salads, soups, charcuterie plates and more.



    1. In a medium saucepan, boil 2 cups of water and 4 tsp. sea salt. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of dried green peppercorns. Cover and soak peppercorns for 30 minutes.

    2. Drain liquid and reserve 1/2 cup of water. Place 1 tsp. sea salt, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 5 cloves garlic, 2 bay leaves, and drained peppercorns in a 16 oz. glass jar. Pour 1/2 cup soaking liquid and 1/2 cup lemon juice into the jar and fill almost to the top.

    3. Allow to cool for 30 minutes then refrigerate overnight. Store in the fridge for up to 2 months.
