Have you ever stared at a recipe, puzzled over the terms cracked vs. ground pepper? If you have, you’re not alone. Let Peugeot Saveurs walk you step-by-step through the process for the ultimate in pepper flavor!

The Optimal Way to Eat Pepper

With a savoir-faire dating back to the 19th century, Peugeot was the first company to invent the pepper mill in 1874. Earlier versions of the pepper mill had, up until that time, relied on a mortar and pestle design. However, with its patented grinding mechanism, Peugeot engineered a burr mechanism with two different sized grooves, the first for channeling and the second for grinding. By turning the mechanism in a clockwise direction, the channeling grooves line up the peppercorns and crack them, while the smaller and sharper grinding grooves mill the peppercorns down uniformly to the selected fineness or coarseness of your choice.

So why does freshly cracked pepper taste better than pre-ground pepper that has been sitting in a peppershaker for weeks? The secret lies in the act of cracking the peppercorns first, which allows their natural oils to be released for a more intense flavor. However, once pepper is ground, it has a tendency to quickly lose its gustative qualities. That is why we recommend that you buy whole peppercorns and grind them at the last minute with a Peugeot pepper mill. Functional and refined, electric or manual, they are available in a variety of different materials: wood, stainless steel, cast iron or acrylic.
