What is Fermented Green Peppercorn?
The journey of the Fermented Peppercorns commences in the stunning country of Cambodia, where the hot and humid climate provides the perfect conditions for these zesty little gems to flourish.
Harvested while still young and green, they possess a milder peppery taste with hints of bright citrus and vegetables such as green tomato, chili, and asparagus.
Post-harvest, the peppercorns are dried slightly but retain a soft texture, rendering them edible without further cooking. Next, they undergo a dry brine where fine sea salt is generously applied to their surface.
Finally, the salted peppercorns are placed in wooden barrels and sealed for several months, allowing them to ferment and mature. This process softens the peppercorns further, impregnating them with sea salt and adding complex lactic pickle undertones to their flavor profile.
