Cracking Peppercorns: What's your best method?

FoodFuser | | May 19, 2008 07:44 PM

Just got a whole new array of good peppercorns, and want to do some nice cracked pepper exteriors.

Up till now, I've use the spice grinder to pulse a bit, then seived the results thru two mesh gauges of strainers, with some fines left over to be reground.

What's a good way to crack the corns into chunks of 3 to 4 pieces per corn?

(The old old song comes to mind: "Jimmy crack corn , and I DO care....")
