If you use a pepper grinder you know that the stuff in the paper packets is just plain sad. It has no taste. So, I envison pepper corns that have been placed in shrink wrap then 'jolted' so as to create fisures in the kernal (without breaking it apart) when opened the pepper would shatter providing fresh groud taste. mmmmmm

       Put peppercorns in a hot skillet and you'll discover that they already *do* explode.

       Baked? Literally.

       [angel]- I thought the point was to get that same effect, only without all of the work.

       [Galileo], I agree with you.   

       I like this idea. I'm not at all sure how one would go about "jolting" the peppercorns so that they'd still stay together yet be fine enough when dispensed from the package. Still, the idea is intriguing.

       A long time ago a friend from Iran received a huge amount of seeds from back home - they were uh - hemp seeds so he uh could grow rope and stuff. Anyhoo, he cooked some up - tasted like bacon.

       Sadly, when you "jolt" or break apart a peppercorn, the oils and flavors disipate rather quickly. Maybe it could be accomplished with a black pepper oil spray concentrate.

       Some of "da boyz" are running away to see if this will work with cranberries.
