A Spicy Topic

I don’t like black pepper.  To be completely honest, I cannot fathom why or how it became as popular on North American tables as salt.  In my opinion, salt has far more to offer!  That said, I don’t mind changing things up with pepper on macaroni and cheese, but that is about my only exception.

The worst: after finishing dinner and having a lovely vague aftertaste reminiscent of your meal, you discover a piece of black pepper in your mouth that instantly eliminates all other tastes and leaves your tongue burning with its unhappy flavour.

I feel like I’m the only one who refuses a waiter/waitress when they offer freshly-ground pepper.  (I don’t even like when it’s not-recently-ground and lost half its flavour…..)  Alas, I’m under the impression I’m one of few anti-pepper patrons.  Perhaps I am not alone?
