Welcome to DC.

The pepper that's half of the 'salt and pepper duo' is commonly called black pepper. The scientific name is "piper ingram."

You may also want to consider whole pepper corns and a pepper grinder. Pepper is one of those spices that lose flavor quickly after the pepper corn is cracked. I also have an inexpensive electric coffee grinder that I use only for spices (never coffee).

Black pepper is sold in much the same way as coffee. You can buy whole peppercorns to grind yourself, or already ground black pepper in fine or course grinds.

I'll agree with stock pot. Buy a grinder and whole peppercorns. The flavor is far superior, not to mention the one size fits all grind size doesn't work for me.

Riverbraid is very new to cooking. He/She doesn't know how to access plain pepper


I say don't overwhelm him/her with complicated foodie stuff.


Just my .02

Keep it simple works so much better. I doubt he even knows what a grinder for pepper is. All he wanted to know is what is the name of that black stuff you shake on your food. Not information on a mechanical contraption he never heard of.
