Also known as Dune Pepper, Alder Catkins are piney, woodsy, and peppery. Best ground and mixed with ingredients. If you want to sprinkle on a dish, grind with a mortar and pestle instead of a pepper grinder as the catkins can be a little resinous and sticky. Alder Catkins will go marvelously with earthy and meaty ingredients, wild game, most wild fowl, chicken, pork, and beef. Alder catkins will also compliment the flavors from chanterelles and spruce tips. Exceptional in cures, brines, and marinades.
If this is a new food for you be attentive when consuming.
