New Infatuation w/ Ghost Peppers
Ghost peppers are my new best friend. Smile Super-hot and very tasty. Makes jalapenos and Serranos look like cucumbers.

I've had 3 jars of ghost pepper salsa, and *finally* there's something that is hot enough to give me pause, and also flavorful enough to make me want more.

From the salsa, I moved on to a ghost pepper curry sauce I found at the local co-op. It's maybe not quite as hot as the salsa, but it has a marvelous rich, smokey flavor that makes any meat/veggie combo into excellent curry.

I'm going to get a plant next spring, so I can try making pickles with a fresh one, and my own salsa, and chili con carne, and pepper-coated bacon strips, and who knows what else. nummynummynummy

Anyone else tried these little lovelies?

I've only had them a couple of times; mostly I'm a habanero guy.

A friend as grown some and I've had his home-made salsa. Very nice. Thumbsup

I also like the flavor of habanero and the "milder" Scotch Bonnet better myself.

RE: New Infatuation w/ Ghost Peppers
I found the ghost peppers (bhut jolokia) a pain to grow, and far too hot for anything other than a novelty for me. The heat level is so high I could never make something with it that was mild enough yet had any flavor from the pepper. I wish I could take more heat (I am a foody, and love flavour), but I just can't.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Oh, yeah. Scotch Bonnets - they're scrumptious.

I have the same issue with Ghost Peppers. Habaneros I can deal with (they have a great flavor) but anything hotter than that and I'm out.

I am partial to Cayenne myself. Easy to grow, nice long curly red flames they look like. Yum.

Cayenne is good flavor, but it no longer qualifies as "hot". Big Grin

Habaneros are delicious. I have not tried the things labeled Scotch Bonnets at my local market, because they look the same as habaneros, and cost half again as much. Doesn't seem very Scotch to me. Tongue Are they very different?
