Picked before they ripen, these berries have a fresh green bell pepper flavor and a punch of heat. To substitute for green peppercorns in brine, soak dried peppercorns for one hour in warm water or white wine.
Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
You can visit their own site here or find more of their spices on Keep Oakland Alive.
