Smashing Peppercorns

Many recipes use crushed peppercorns. Settings on a regular pepper mill are too fine. So if you don't have a mortar and pestle, just use a natural coffee filter! Fold the peppercorns inside the natural coffee filter and smash them with the flat side of a tenderizing hammer. The filter keeps pepper from flying everywhere, and it gives you a convenient funnel that you can throw away.
