    susie cooks's Note:

    This is a great appetizer. It is easy and fast and can be made up to 4 days before serving. I like to use a mixture of white, black and red peppercorns. Cook time does not include time to marinate. I always get asked for the recipe. Very pretty presentation. From Hugh Carpenter.

      I've made this recipe for years and have gotten rave reviews. I cheat a bit and use peppercorn mix from Williams Sonoma as it already has allspice berries in it.
      Leftovers (when there are some) are good tossed with hot pasta.

      I have to echo mikekey's WOW! These are really quite incredible, especially with Pita Chips #51116. I am not a fan of a lot of "heat" but the very pleasant slight numbness resulting from ... what? (I used the combo pink,white,black peppercorns) is lovely. I recommend this highly--it would be a stunning contribution to a potluck!

      This is fabulous!! Very easy to make, I served then on a small slice of french bread and they were gone in minutes. I was very surprised and please a the mildness of the peppercorns and allspice berries. I already have a second batch in the fridge. thanks so much for sharing this recipe
