Victorian Pepper Uses

From 'The Dictionary of Daily Wants' - 1859

PEPPER, USES AND PROPERTIES OF. - Peppers are of various kinds, but have nearly the same properties in modified degrees. Those used chiefly in Europe are the black and white pepper.

Domestic pepper is one of the most wholesome and useful of spices. With persons in ordinary health, it has the effect of stimulating the stomach gently to the performance of its functions; and is peculiarly serviceable to persons who are of cold habit, or who suffer from a weak digestion. But in inflammatory habits, and where affections of the mucous membrane exist, its effects are highly injurious.

As a medicine, it is often serviceable in nausea, vomiting, chronic diarrhoea, and ague.
