Yeah, I've been meaning to do that. I've actually grabbed the "coffee grinder" before and thought 'How bad would one time be?...It's only once?' ....and decided against it. I drink Folgers in the big ol tub. The guests might be a tad thrown by the flavor though. LOL

Even though I love herbs/spices/flavorings of all kinds, I'm not the hugest fan of pepper. Yet, having said that, I usually follow recipes calling for pepper and ALWAYS use freshly ground pepper. As someone already said, the flavor is far better when freshly ground. I couldn't tell you how many years it's been since I've purchased one of those "red-and-white" boxes of ground pepper.

I hate black pepper, with passion. I avoid it as much as possible. End of story

WOW! Charlie I use it lightly or heavy depending on what I am making. So I guess cracked black pepper is like Kryptonite to you

The only rules I have seen about black pepper are the ones my urologist gave me. No black pepper (kidney stones). I can compromise a little, but I can't give it up! I love black pepper, especially freshly, coarsely ground.

As far as what to put it in, it just depends on your tastes. I love it in a lot of things.

The only time I've raised an eyebrow over using black pepper is when I saw a TV chef putting it on strawbeerries!. I'm not sure about that.
DW had a friend who covered everything savoury she ate with pepper, clouds of the stuff.

That sounds strange to me too, but I have accidentally gotten pepper on cantaloupe while peppering my eggs, and it tasted fine. So who knows?!

My rule is if you like it use it.
Anyway, I think it is best added freshly ground and after the dish is cooked.
I just leave the pepper grinder on the table and everybody can add as much as they want.
