Tellicherry Black Peppercorns in bulk
Here's an off the beaten path suggestion:
how about buying a bunch of Costco's Tellicherry pepper mills?
Costco is so cheap and they are already "packaged" up for you. Just bust one open when you need to!
I haven't priced out the mills versus something you can get in bulk ... but I would venture to guess that the price is probably very competitive ... and it would not surprise me to find that it would be cheaper via Costco given the economies of scale.
I use India Tree, a Seattle company. Their website does not list a B.C. source, but there are four in Bellingham. Also available online.
