    Just wondering if anyone else, besides me, hates the taste of pepper. I never use it and hate to eat food from anyone else or a restaurant that uses it. If there is pepper on food, that's all I can taste. Friends are always telling me there is so little in something that I won't even taste it, but I always do. Am I the only one? Please tell me that I'm not.

    I am not so bad with pepper ,but I hate all the salt that is added. I never cook with it myself, and when someone says that something is well seasoned, I can't eat it.

    I also can't eat peppers (the vegetable) - does terrible things to my digestion.

    Did you know that pepper used to be so expensive it cost more than its weight in gold? I'm glad that is no longer the case because I love it- Indian food yum yum. (I don't like the pre- milled pepper though- too dusty or something)

    If you dont like, just dont have it- everyone has their own taste and I am happy to eat your share!

    I don't use pepper, it's only there for my husband and son in law. What is it with men? My sister thinks it shouldn't even be sold.

    Me too!

    MIL hates pepper though so I pull her portions out before adding pepper for us.

    I prefer pepper over salt and use it quite frequently! It gives food a boost in flavor...JMHO!

    I like pepper on my food, use it before I use salt. DH doesn't like pepper and I make sure I underseason the food when I cook, salt and pepper alike. I add pepper to my taste when the food is on my dish. Limit my salt because of HBP but DH piles it on even before he tastes his food. For a person who doesn't like pepper or spicy foods he is always suggesting that we eat at Mexican restaurants, go figure. Of course, he often can't eat his Mexican food and 'cools' his tongue with lots of sour cream and cold drinks.

    Oh, I love pepper! Not too much, but I certainly use it a good bit. I can't remember the last time I had to buy salt, but I certainly have to replenish the peppermill frequently!

    Pepper's fine for me, but I hate hate hate fennel. I can taste the tiniest amount of it and I don't like it one little bit. Blech. Fiance loves it, but has stopped trying to sneak it in when he cooks dinner, because I always know. ;)

    Also, I can't tolerate capsaicin (the stuff that makes hot peppers hot), but horseradish spice doesn't bother me. Weird.

    I don't care for anything that is hot. Burns my tongue. Now my hubby is the complete opposite. Even the smell of his plate makes my eyes water. Any red food (goulash, spagetti sloppy joes) he drounds it with tobasco! YUCK! But he likes it.

    in my house, "well seasoned" means covered in herbs. I hardly use salt at all when cooking. And if the recipe calls for salt, I usually use about half of what they say (unless baking) but the only thing I put salt on is french fries from fast food places when I go there about once a year and then I use only half or less a packet.

    But I use pepper, not a lot but my dad always puts more on.

    Watch out! You might be on your way to becoming allergic to black pepper. This is how I started. I am most likely actually allergic to the fungus that grows on the outside shell of the black pepper. Think IBS, shaking, cramping and profuse cold sweat. I can not eat antyhing unless I make it. I can not eat anything that has touched food that has balck pepper or been fried in the same oil. I do believe black pepper use has been on the upswing. It used to be offered at the table freshly ground in restaurants but now it is normally already added. Anything labeled with spice in the store I need to avoid because that usually means pepper. I can handle some hot sauce etc. I am not allergic to spicy food just black pepper.

    I noticed that too especially with men cooks. Many seem to pride themselves on how much pepper they can put on it. It is imposible to take off. Let people season and salt their own.

    I love pepper, black, white, red..doesn't matter, but I'm spare with salt. =My DH took me to a wonderful tapas restaurant a couple of days ago and the food was so salty it took away from the overall yumminess of the meal. I'd never had beef and octopus so tender that it melted.
