Cracked Black Pepper

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by jjlnyc, Apr 15, 2016.

  1. I have seen a few posts here about various ways and preferences to grind our whole peppercorns.
    I have tried various ways:
    Mortar and pestle - good for a small amount, too tiresome to do more than a few tbsps

    Pepper mills - same as above

    Electric coffee grinder - too fine for my liking

    Mini-food processor - peppercorns just spun around without cracking!

    My preferred method so far has been my old fashioned coffee mill:

    BUT - visiting Costco this week I was thrilled to see the following - exact same price as for whole peppercorns, and just the right size for most of my needs.
    WooHoo! Stocked up on a few bottles, should get me thru a couple months of summer smokin'!

    I love my pepper grinder and my whole telicherry peppercorns but to grind even a couple tablespoons for a rub can be well, grinding [​IMG] I have considered buying cracked pepper for the time when I need more than a couple twists from my table grinder. I'm always leery about the freshness of store bought spices. I have been buying spices from The Spice House for years now and have never NEVER been disappointed with any of their product. Once I discovered the difference in what really fresh spices are like I never went back to store bought.

    Spice House sells 7 different grinds of pepper. From extra course down to almost dust.

    Next time I order some spices I think I will purchase some coarse grind.

    Good thread topic!
