some cravings are because you are deficient in a certain vitamin/mineral. for instance, its very common for those with low iron levels to eat ice. I dunno why-but we do.-- and its common. I googled black pepper craving and it said that pepper is high in iron. I was asking to see if there was a connection there. apparently not.

Funny, I actually though the same thing. Though, I couldn't remember if that was real or I just made it up so I dismissed the thought...

Ummmm...serranos and habeneros Smile

Nope, it can be spelled both ways. The "j" sound in Spanish is the "h" sound in English. Google both spellings and you'll see Smile

More actually.

Black pepper requires a lot, especially if you're used to spicy food.

My husband laughs at me as I cover my eggs with a nice layer of the stuff. LOL

RE: Need a Second Opinion
My father did the same.

I'm the reverse. When offered black pepper in a restaurant, I refuse on the grounds that I want to taste the meal as the chef intended it. I reckon it would be an insult to said chef to not try it before I changed it.

When I was down and out in Paris, I took a job in Burger King (Hungry Jack's for the Aussies), Champs Elysee. They added shitloads (measured precisely) of pepper to make the punters order more drinks.

Since then, I have stopped cooking with both salt and pepper... but it took a while to get used to real flavours.

I suggest that you try slowly reducing the amounts you use to re-balance your taste receptors.
If not, you'll end up like my Thai girls who can only start eating once they've added shitloads (again) of chilies.

That's all I got, sorry, I don't have a second opinion.

Serranos - Awesome! Really adds flavor and not heat for sake of heat!Thumbsup I forgot about serranos. Thanks for reminding me.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

I would recommend looking up different kinds of peppers. I personally love the cross breed of jabeneros and serranos. They have a good kick, and great natural roasted flavor (though I can't think of the name). My uncle has a mini pepper farm in his backyard. So delicious! Big Grin

RE: Need a Second Opinion
I love black pepper - your picture looked fine to me. Drooling

But I usually use less than that because I use fresh ground pepper. The stuff in those packets has lost its mojo. Undecided

Totally agree. Fresh ground pepper is amazing. But alas, it's from my work's cafeteria. I can only do so much lol. Though I still use a decent amount for fresh pepper as well
