Same here, and then a chef friend told me that Tellicherry was the world's best black pepper. He was helping me with supper and saw the jar in my cupboard.

I too bought the ones from Costco. I keep mine in the plastic jar they came in. No reason, just what they came in. Are these something that needs to be thrown away, like some spices, at XXXX age?

I don't think so. I think spices should only be pitched when they've lost their flavor. They don't actually "go bad". Penzy's catalog has very good explanations of both the differences between different types of peppercorns, as well as how often to switch out your spices. I have a lot of spices with some age on them, they still taste and smell good, so I keep 'em! Whole spices seem to last much longer than pre-ground.

They sell them at Whole Foods, but they're priced pretty high at $20 for 11 ounces.

I drop by TJ Max occassionaly to see what they have discounted. There is always a done of different peppers and salts in there. I was thinking that if there is really no "expiration date" for Pepper you could pick up some varieties at reasonable prices.

Thanks for reminding me about TJ Maxx! I also saw them at Bed Bath today. They came in a grinder under their private label World Market brand.
