We have an extra pepper grinder and will be trying this. I'm confused about the white pepper tho. Does that come as seed? I've only seen powder.
the difference is that white pepper has had the black hull from black pepper removed. there's a slight difference in flavor, but it's mostly aesthetics.
ie: as Carla on Top Chef commented when finishing making her omelette: "What, we have no white pepper?!?!? Fine, it will just look like someone fucking ashed on it. "
