Tip of the week: toast your pepper

Here's a tip I picked up awhile a ago from Shopping with Chefs.

They recommend that before filling your pepper mill with those peppercorns you just picked up at the store (or spice emporium), you toast them in a skillet on the stove for a few minutes until they are fragrant.

I'm thinking this is beneficial because it releases the oils. I'm not sure, but it smells great.

Give a shot! And, while you're at it, experiment with some of the many different types of peppercorns that are out there.
