Dry toasting most spices gives you another layer of flavor too! Besides my pepper grinder, a mortar and pestle, and a pizza seasoning grinder I found in the dollar store, I have a dedicated coffee grinder too. Good spices are easy to find in Milwaukee what with The Spice House, it’s offspring Pennzey’s and a host of small local spice stores.
It sounds as if you’re good to go, MilwFoodlovers. I need to get out and find a good spice shop and restock.
