Spice grinder cleanup
For grinding spices, nothing beats an old electric whirl coffee grinder. But if you have only one coffee grinder, here's how to make it do double duty: Before using it to grind spices, run a few chunks of day old bread or pita through it and dump it out (compost or scatter it for birds). The bread crumbs will pick up the finely ground particles, making it easier to wipe out the interior with a paper towel. Before going back to coffee use, do the bread whirl again.
