Why You Should Grind Your Own Spices

Rösle Glass Spice Mill


Sure, it may seem convenient to buy your spices already ground, but I assure you that's just because you haven't found the right tool yet to ground your own. Enter the Rösle Glass Spice Mill. This gadget is a great addition to your kitchen arsenal!

I have to admit though, when I first opened the package I was a bit disappointed. Why? I am a woman who needs instructions. I searched high and low — no such luck. The only guidance I received was the two sentences written on the side of the box telling me that this is the perfect tool to grind my spices.

After a little trial and error (when you clean this spice mill, make sure it's thoroughly dry before using), I got down to grinding spices for our dinner: Habanero-Stuffed Turkey Burgers and Lean Grilled Chicken.

Once cleaned, dried and filled again, the Rösle Glass Spice Mill worked like a charm. It brought the perfect flavor of freshly ground pepper to life.
