Peppery Alder Catkins
Peppery alder catkins are the green/brown catkins (flowering spike) of alder trees. They have a zesty, citrusy flavour with a hint of bitter and a nice peppery finish. Particularly good with fish and pork dishes. Try using Peppery Alder Catkins in place of black pepper, or boil them as you would rice or potatoes.
