I dunno but my gut says BS.

Will I ever make it, NO so I'll never know.

 

I can't say what the modern KFC uses, but while White Pepper is not cheap, it would not be uncommon in a 1930's Southern gentleman's kitchen or his first restaurant and would easily be part of the Original Recipe as this claims to be...JJ

All the discussion of KFC brought to mind two anecdotes from way back memories.

 

I remember a cartoon in an old Playboy magazine. Show typical suburbs home, two narc detectives dragging out the Colonel and the caption read...  "we finally figured out those eleven secrete herbs and spices!"

 

Back in high school I don't remember if we even had a KFC in the area. Lacking a hot lunch program in high school we often ditched the sack lunches and went to the only place we could walk to eat, a Dairy Freeze. When they first got into fried chicken it was called Broasted Chicken and he had the broaster (a type of logoed pressure cooker) and he fixed right where we could see. Wow was that ever good!!! Especially with candy and an ice cream cone.  Good times for sure!

I liked the original recipe as a kid, but then again, we didn't get much restaurant food in my family. If forced to eat KCF now, I prefer the extra-crispy or grilled. The original is kinda bland, by comparison.
