Whole peppercorns that you grind yourself will provide you with flavours far beyond what you get out of a container of pre-ground stuff. The reason is when pepper is ground, oils are released that in time will dissipate, leaving you with a much less desirable product. That is why we always grind the peppercorns, allspice and Juniper berries ourselves. Don’t buy them ground, grind them yourself and you will notice a very big difference in flavour!
