sidebar: pepper as preservative?

ed | Feb 4, 200409:15 PM

- from yesterdays 'sterile technique' -

.my question to the chowpound is, to what extent is spice or garlic perceived as/actually a preservative?

(not salt or alcohol)

i think west african mafe is supposed to get it's staying power from hotness. other examples, or the opinion of a microbiologist would be interesting.
