Back in the ancient days, and I'm sure some food historian is going to correct me, and that's fine, but back in the ancient days of my childhood there was only one kine of peppercorn: black.
You had black peppercorns for your grinder or grind black pepper in a shaker.
Black. Nothing else.
Not so today. Today we have a plethora (love that word!) of pepper options: black, white, pink, green, red and shades in between.
Now I have in my house a variety of pepper grinders each filled with their individual delicacy.
Yep. After all that my favorite is just plain black peppercorn.
I don't know why I bothered buying all those other pepper mills.
