Furthermore, can I substitute Capers for green peppercorns?
The need to get rid of the bitterness is why capers are usually served pickled. They are renowned for their salty, lemony flavor. Capers are about the same size as green peppercorns and are spherical and green, which gives them a similar appearance. Use capers as a 1:1 substitute for green peppercorns in any dish.
Secondly, how do you use green peppercorns? You'll also find green peppercorns packed in jars of brine; use these whole or chopped in sauces, salad dressings, potato salads, pastas, and spreads.
Accordingly, can you eat green peppercorns?
All About Green Peppercorns. Because they are milder than black peppercorns you can eat them whole. They have a fresher flavour than black – fresh as in freshly picked herbs or freshly ground pepper.
What can I use instead of capers?
Green olives can be used as a substitute for capers in recipes. But since they are much bigger than capers, it is better to take only half the number of olives while using it as a substitute. So for every four capers that you would add, use just two green olives.
