Does this ever happen to you? You are merrily reading through a recently discovered recipe for Double Fried Triple Stuffed Jalapeño Chicken Tenderblasters only to reach “fresh ground pepper” on the ingredients list. Your excitement transforms into dread as you imagine the painfully slow torture of grinding 2 teaspoons of pepper by hand. Why? Because your pepper mill sucks.
Well friend, not all pepper mills suck. (Most of them suck. But not all of them.) And if you think it doesn’t make a huge difference in the preparation of any recipe (including garnishing your morning grits and gin), then you can… wait, you eat grits and gin for breakfast?
