Ingredients: pink peppercorns, black peppercorns, white peppercorns, green peppercorns and whole allspice
We love fresh ground pepper and our peppermill gets plenty of use. We love to experiment with our peppercorns and peppercorn blends (one of the best parts of owning this company). Some nights we may go for a smoked peppercorn and the next time we fill up the peppermill it might be a gourmet peppercorn mix.
We prefer to grind these for a more consistent size while others like to use a mortar and pestle for a coarser grind. We didn’t like the often unexpected flavor explosions that the mortar and pestle provided.
Recently we’ve been experimenting with a Mignonette Peppercorn blend. Now as we dug into the history of this blend it became quite interesting and it was actually like many seasoning blends where the recipe varies from region to region.
In northern Europe Mignonette Pepper refers to an equal mix of black and white peppercorns. While in Canada the French-Canadians mix their version of Mignonette Pepper with black and white peppercorns and also Coriander seed. This French-Canadian version is also sometimes called “shot pepper”.
Our version is still another take on this as it has mixed with pink peppercorns, black peppercorns, white peppercorns, green peppercorns and whole allspice.
In addition to the variety of blends that a mignonette may be it also has several other cooking references used throughout the years. At one time a mignonnette referred to a small cloth sachet filled with various peppercorns and cloves. This was used to flavor stews and soups as we use a bouquet garni today. The term "poivre mignonnette" typically refers to white peppercorns that are coarsely ground.
You can use this as a rub on large cuts of beef, chicken or lamb. As a rub we recommend using 1 tsp per pound of meat. This also adds delicious flavor to pasta, pot roast, potatoes, rice, soups and stews.
The grinder has two grind sizes which can be adjusted by pulling the top of the cap away from the bottom of the cap.
