If you like to use freshly ground pepper, try this tip. Roast the peppercorns in a 325 degree F oven for 10-15 minutes, or pan roast on top of the stove for about 5 minutes. When they have cooled, refrigerate.


This will intensify the flavor of the peppers. I buy a large container of mixed peppercorns and roast the entire amount. I return the peppercorns to the original container, and keep refrigerated until the pepper mills are ready to be refilled.

This is a good idea. I do this with all of my spices, but use a frying pan on top of the stove. I put any and all spices in my warm frying pan and carefully watch it because they can burn easily. You'll smell the spices intensify.
But do yourself a favor and don't put your nose over the pan like I did. I scorched my nose hairs, I swear!

Nuts can also be roasted in the oven or frying pan to intensify the flavor. You can use less nuts in a recipe this way too, for calorie cutting or frugalness.
