  1. I always wonder why white people prefer the blandness spice of only salt and pepper. Ofc there are some w knowledge, but not all. In my country there's too much spices like in a single dish you'll find 5-9 spices in total.
  2. I ❤ salt and pepper
  3. the last part about salt and no pepper is cringe worthy AF
  4. Go cinnamon!!!
  5. Liked the video until the ending...
  6. Yes to pepper, but anything but salt.
  7. How can there be a talk about spices without any mention of India.
  8. I dont see why to refuse pepper. It's really wonderful. My life really changed after I started using it in my cuisine.

    Before that, my family only used salt and garlic.
  10. Salt is a American thing.
    I'm from Brazil, we don't put those together.
  11. NaCl is not the only rock we eat, we eat CaCO3 as well
  12. "The Spice[s] must flow!"
  13. I actually have that Salt World History book. o_o
  14. Assuming early humans only ate meat lol , some studies showed vegan neanderthals, try again hunny
  15. I like cinnamon
  16. As recently as the 19th century, cruet stands held three pots with perforated tops. One for salt, one for pepper and... According to the food historian, Gerard Brett, what the third one contained is an unsolved mystery. Some have speculated about its intended contents but no evidence has been found. Weird, isn't it?
  17. pepper is also very very good at keeping flies off meat.
  18. depends on taste. everything should be taken with a pinch of salt
  19. "Sodium chloride" "Uh dude, thats salt"
  20. I’m stayin’ with pepper.
