Not a big fan of tabasco sauce but horseradish saved many a crappy bland meal. I grow it around the place and dig down with a knife and cut off a piece of root a couple of times a month still. With a little vinegar and ground mustard I can disguise many things I wud by choice not normally choose to eat. And yes…I have known people with very sparse funds and choices simply not eat and become noticeably week. I store lots of various peppercorns for similaf reasons as I have yet been able to grow it successfully.
