Who measures pepper? Grind over food until adequately speckled.
People who use the pre-ground stuff?
But I do know it's 20 cranks on my pepper mill for one teaspoonful. I had to know for science.
It was my birthday this weekend, and MIL gave me a printout of a New Yorker heirloom bean article, a dozen varieties of heirloom beans, an heirloom bean cookbook, and…a 7 quart Le Creuset Dutch oven. It’s in cobalt to match the braiser she gave me a few months ago. It was unexpected on many levels.
I do really like beans, but wouldn’t consider myself a bean connoisseur or particularly passionate about them. I feel, however, that it would be criminal to not go all-in on the bean train when the woman who gave me two Le Creusets wants me to.
Tonight we had Christmas Lima Beans. Next year if you ask me about esoteric bean varieties, I hope to have the answer.
