@jstory07 We don't use pepper in my house. It goes back to my grandma on my mom's side who was a character who everybody loved. My grandma was the best cook ever. But she would not use black pepper in anything. It didn't matter if there was a recipe that called for it. That is because she had made up her recipes and thought using pepper would make people believe she was putting dirt ion her food. Truth be told, I don't think we have any black pepper in the house in years, Not even next to the salt shaker. It sits empty next yo the salt shaker. . We just put it up because it would drive my mom crazy to see on one bottle of salt on the salt and pepper/napkin holder. Thanks for sharing the information on prepper. I like to learn as much as possible. Good Job!

I love black pepper, grows well in the Philippines. We sometimes make our own by mashing whole pepper corns( that we also use besides the powder) using mortar and pestle, powdered pepper is readily available but it's still fun to make. We use whole pepper corns in a very popular dish called adobo.
