If you’re looking to get the most flavor from your pepper, then using a pepper mill for fresh cracked pepper is a must. Whole peppercorns, when cracked and used right away, will have a more lively and sharper flavor than the preground pepper.
The world’s most popular spice was once so valuable that it was actually used as a form of currency.
I highly recommend purchasing an electric pepper mill or battery operated pepper mill. This is a great kitchen gadget because unlike the traditional manual wood pepper mill that requires the use of two hands, the electric pepper mills use the push of a button to free the other hand to handle the product you are seasoning.
