I've been grinding my own black pepper for years. A couple years ago, I bought a second grinder, and keep it stocked with White peppercorns.

lugaru, i've always wondered about using a peppercorn mix. i've used lots of fresh crushed black pepper in most dishes, and white pepper in cream sauces and mashed potatoes (ever since someone made dinner for me, and as i was helping wash up, i noticed the non-stick lining in one of my good pots was shredded. the bits of what i thought was black pepper in the mashed taters was the teflon coating she used a blender with metal blades in the pot ).
but what would you make with red and green peppercorns? do they taste much different than black and white peppercorns?

next to my black pepper grinder, i keep another grinder filled with medium chunk sea salt. i don't think it helps the flavor, but i end up putting less salt i the dish that way.

I keep four grinders around.
1 Pensey Extra Bold Telecherry
2 " Saurak this is wonderful for so many things!!!
3 " Plain Telechrry
4 some White telecherry I bought last year in NYC

If I need ground pepper to sprinkle like you do Kosher salt, I use # 3.

There hasn't been a can of pre ground pepper in our house for at least 15 yrs.

Robt (or anybody), Can you explain the difference between Saurak and Telecherry for me? I have only bought the whole peppercorns that my supermarket carries so I don't even know what kind those are, but I am placing a Penzy's order soon and want to get pepper. I don't know which of these to get (or maybe I should just get both).

I grind, too. It's one of those things that you don't realize what a huge difference it makes until you do it.

I have been grinding for more years than most of you have been alive.

I don't keep pre-ground pepper in my house.
