Harley Pasternak's Tips of the Day....

Adding Pep to Your Meals
You'll find pepper, along with salt, on almost every American dining table — and probably on most tables around the world. But did you know that the simple act of grinding your own pepper when cooking or seasoning a meal delivers more flavor than pre-ground pepper? The explanation is simple — the pepper you grind is fresh, whereas the pepper you buy at the store may have been sitting on the shelf for months! Pepper mills vary in price, but inexpensive plastic models can be purchased at your local supermarket. Challenge yourself to enjoy the great taste of freshly ground pepper today!

Spice — the Variety of Life
There are three types of pepper: black, white, and green. Black is the most common and the strongest — a bit hot with a hint of sweetness. White pepper is milder and less pungent, and green pepper, which is cured in brine, has a fresher flavor. Who knew that one little spice can give you so many options? Getting to know your spices can introduce you to a whole new way of eating — and all it takes is a dash.
