I'm late to the party in discovering the appeal of the Two Fat Ladies, but am working my way through the DVD collection, mostly for their clever and captivating banter. In addition, listening to them work on the Aga, I've had a few "aha!" moments. One is to put some allspice berries into the pepper grinder along with the black peppercorns. I only have ground allspice on hand but put the berries on my shopping list, and will think about other seeds or berries that could work in partnership with peppercorns as all-purpose seasoning options.
