1.making your seasoned pepper
your pepper mill is more versatile than you might think, tighten the top screw to get finely ground pepper which is ideal for soups and sauces. for general seasoning you want it medium ground to set the screw in the middle and loosen it right off for course pepper which is perfect for steaks and fish.
2.Peeling the garlic fast:
if it’s one clove simply bash it with the back of a knife and the skin will com off easily, for a whole head of garlic crush and separate it into a bowl, cover it and shake hard for about 10 seconds then simply pick out the garlic cloves.
