    How do you turn your pepper mill?

    I can't believe I'm posting this - it seems so trivial. But I will carry on regardless! :D Today, it occurred to me that I might be using pepper and salt mills incorrectly. I've always turned pepper and salt mills in one direction; clockwise. Today, for some reason I started to doubt this was...

    A Peppery Mess

    Please help me. My wife has begun to draw my attention to the layer of black pepper that surrounds the front burners of our stove after I’m done cooking. She concludes that I was being careless when I use the pepper mill over my eggs in the morning. I didn’t quite believe it, but I've tried to...

    How to sex a pepper

    Now firstly, I'm not sure why you would want to do this. Secondly, I cannot vouch that it is true. I was doing a bit of research on paprika and came across this: Look at the bottom of the pepper (not stalk end). If it has 3 bumps its male. If it has 4 bumps its female. At this point you all...

    Ghost Pepper Sea Salt

    Karen ordered some Aji Panca dried chilis and a small sample packet of this salt came with the order. I haven't tried it yet and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it? Ghost peppers are also known as Bhut Jolokia.

    Recipe Aubergine, Pepper and Anchovy Filo Tian

    This is a little fiddly to make but not at all difficult. The filo strips stick nicely to the aubergine and peppers so there is no need for a mould. I served it as a starter. For a vegan version you could substitute sun dried tomatoes or capers for the anchovy. Ingredients (makes 2 to 3...

    Salt and Pepper

    I thought about making this a poll, but sometimes folks just mark a poll choice and not respond with an answer. When you make a multi-ingredient dish, do you find it necessary to add salt and/or pepper at the table? I rarely if ever find myself adding either at the table. I did when I was...

    Recipe Potatoes Roasted in Vanilla Pepper Oil

    The essence of this recipe is the vanilla pepper oil. Chef Coby Lee Ming mentioned infusing oil with vanilla and pepper and using it in a vinaigrette. This sounds brilliant, but I wanted to take it somewhere else. She used pepper and vanilla bean, while I used szechuan peppercorns, pepper, and...

    Recipe Spicy Pepper and Tomato Pasta Sauce (2 ways)

    A lot of meals I make are designed to accommodate vegan and pescatarian and/or carnivores in the house. Starting off with a basic sauce and taking it in several directions is a good option. This is a straightforward sauce to make. You could add minced meat instead of the soya mince for a meat...
