Oh, and Cayenne too!!
I sent a batch of hokey pokey to someone in here.
She said she liked the bittersweet orange flavored one best.
Didn't much say anything about the other batch that I'd heated up with cayenne. I LOVED THAT STUFF.................
I should send it to you but then, I'd be responsible for your dental woes too.

I don't like salt very much, I just use it sparingly, but always use fresh ground black pepper, and cayenne, never white pepper, I hate that stuff.

I definitely prefer black pepper (especially freshly ground). I use white for some things because of kidney stones, but I have to admit I use black pepper most of the time.

I am a salter from way back, like my pepper too. Now that DH is on a low sodium diet - its a bummer on my cooking. Especially one pot meals!

I am often accused of using way too much pepper and not nearly enough salt.
My wife is often accused of using way too much salt and not nearly enough pepper.
Left on my own I often completely omit the salt, but when combined with her we somehow manage to obtain a balance.
Kinda neat the way that works out ;)
I also love to mix my peppers and use several different ones, especially when flavoring meat. I have only recently begun to "see the light" concerning sea salt and coarse salt varieties. My Dr. doesn't mind the sea salt as it is lower in sodium apparently.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but sea salt is not lower sodium. It's the same salt as table salt and it's about 99.5% sodium chloride with a few other minerals in there to provide supporting flavors.

Shhh.. dont tell the Dr. ;) Seriously though, everyone is advertising that products with sea salt have lower sodium. Is it just that it is more flavorful and therefore they use less?? Or are they just blowing more smoke...

Definitely pepper. I pretty much use pepper at every meal. About the only thing I don't put pepper on is my breakfast cereal. I even carry a small pepper grinder in my lunch box. Not to say that I don't use salt, I just to to use keep it to a minimum.

I think salt brings out the flavour a bit more than pepper does, but I tend to use both just as equally. Especially on the yolk of an egg!
