Grinding spices...
« on: November 25, 2009, 10:15:06 pm »
Okay, so my roommates were like, "Oh yeah, we have all of that stuff, you're all set."


...Cinnamon sticks, okay fine.

...Whole nutmeg? Fuck, okay, I can do this.

...ALLSPICE? HOW THE FUCK DO YOU GRIND THESE?!

Is this something I can just smash?

if you have a zester or a grater with a really fine face, that'd be the easiest way that doesn't require special machinery.

I used the microplane for the nutmeg, but the allspice berries are really small, so I was a little concerned about my hands. That's all set now though.

...But my food processor isn't working.  :argh!:

Can't you grind spices in a coffee grinder?  I know it'll leave little things behind but one trick I saw was to grind some bread in it afterward to stick the leftover to it.

Or you could just have delicious allspic-y coffee afterward.

If you use a coffee grinder, putting in kosher salt and grinding the hell out of it is a good way to clean it.
