Exploding Chili Sauce Recall  — ( This Is True ) —

December 6, 2019, - A brand of hot chili sauce Huy Fong Sriracha  was shipped from the United States and has been recalled from countries across Europe due to a risk of the bottles exploding.              
It is the most popular biggest seller, most powerful, rectum pain-full, death defying , if it sits on the shelf and gets stronger, and one of my favorites since the large bottle 28 OZ you cannot consume in three lifetimes unless you had your colon Tefloned or Siliconed — 

I loved it till the doctor said, “ No Mas No Mass” If want to save your ass!

The implicated Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce by Huy Fong Foods has a best-before date of March 2021, batch code H9TMKA 44 33, and comes in a pack size of 740 ml. (25 oz.)  Tuong Ot Sriracha brand hot chili sauce is produced by Huy Fong Foods Inc. based in California.  It does not affect sales nor product safety in the US. And the number one hot sauce is still on top as this was a rare incident never seen before.

Now there is a risk warning the contents may explode once the bottle is opened.  This poses a risk of hot chili sauce irritating eyes or skin, according to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI).

The chili sauce came from the California, US, via the Netherlands, and was distributed to Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.   French officials said fermentation has occurred in the bottle making its consumption dangerous.  People who bought the product are asked not to consume it and to bring the bottle back to the point of sale or destroy it by sending it to the Ukraine and  it throwing it at a Russian tank.

Editors Humorous Note  —  There was additional risk of gas poisoning and explosion since the person reporting it downed the hot sauce with about a gallon of warm beer. The FSAI did evacuate the small town due to the possibility of a severe fart explosion from the beer and Chili combo  —  Fart specialist Morro’ne McSmere warned others of the dangers  —  just before his home exploded and burnt to the ground the coroner declared “ He was just playing with fire”.

OK,  I joke a lot, but this is true, the  bottles exploded —  So fermentation can create some excitement in the kitchen.  I have 
( not joking) a love of  KIM-CHI and experienced it with certain brands of Korean Cabbage in Hot Sauce when I popped the bottle,  it just went splat all over the place.  

Now I learned to just crack the top with two layers of paper towel over it and  leave it in the sink and transfer the contents to a Rubbermaid container I made a needle size valve in the lid.

2022 - In recent weeks KIM-CHI from three different suppliers the Kim-Chi tasted different, more bitter than peppery,  so I stopped buying it.  It was bitter and rancid tasting, Costco’s, Wal-Mart and a local shop.

Yesterday close to my seventy-ninth birth day I opened a bottle I of Huy Fong's nuclear level poison I  had for a long time.  I made the mistake of smelling it, In seconds,  I was in tears, couldn’t breath, it had fermented further and was volcanic. 

Without hesitation, I was  downing vanilla ice cream since I had no milk in the fridge, to put the fire out. I wrapped it in four garbage bags and took it to the dumpster.  Suggestion unless you are a demon buy a small bottle, unless you want to kill an army.  

Sparingly, very sparingly, acid goes a long way.  His stuff is strong and not a good idea for a 79 years old with three stents near my heart.

I have loved hot food all my life but my best friend is my Gastrointestinal -Cardiac - Primary Physician and I am curbing my habits.

Carolina Reaper  —  Guinness World Record Set By Mike Jack   —  Mike Jack gained his fourth world record with the fastest time eating three Carolina Reaper peppers.   How fast could you eat a hot pepper? What about three of the world's hottest peppers? 

Mike Jack of London, Ontario, ate three Carolina Reaper chili peppers is 9.72 seconds, setting the Guinness World for fastest time to eat three of those peppers, which Guinness says are the world’s hottest.   The video of Jack achieving the goal was posted on the Guinness Book of World Records Facebook page on Wednesday, but the official date of the record was November 21, 2020.

Guinness certified the Carolina Reaper as the world's hottest pepper in 2017. Guinness says the chili pepper delivers an average of 1.5 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU). The SHU scale to measure chili pepper heat was developed by American chemist Wilbur Scoville in 1912.  The average jalapeño pepper scores between 2,500 to 8,000 SHU, according to Guinness.  

Jack is familiar with world records because he has previously set three of them, all for consuming hot peppers, according to Guinness.   He broke his first record in January 2019, when he achieved the fastest time to eat three Bhut Jolokia chili peppers. He downed the hot pepper in 9.75 seconds.  When he exhaled four women in the front row of the audience passed out.

His second record is for the most Bhut Jolokia chili peppers eaten in one minute, which he achieved on March 2, 2019, by eating 97 grams.  He followed that when he broke the record for most Bhut Jolokia chili peppers eaten in two minutes on February 29, 2020.  The Bhut Jolokia chili registers at slightly more than 800,000 SHU, strong enough for the Indian military to use it as an ingredient in a hand grenade used for immobilizing adversaries, according to Guinness.

Scoville Heat Scale  —  The Scoville heat scale measures how spicy a hot pepper might be as well as anything made from chili peppers such as hot sauce.  The scale is named after Wilbur Scoville, who developed the test in 1912 we have no idea how long he lived though

Our Produce Director Rich Conger has shared this chart with us measuring the heat of various peppers, some of which you can find in our Produce department.  The Scoville Heat Scale is especially useful for consumers when deciding how much hot pepper to use in a given recipe.  The scale allows consumers to select spicier (hotter) peppers to their personal preference.  Green peppers are at the bottom of the scale (no heat) while the hottest pepper you can buy are the Carolina Reaper peppers, and a few new nuclear hybrids such as the Ghost, the Scorpion, and Pepper X 

Which some claim was invented by Mr. Mestopheles himself and he gave the recipe to The Last Dab hot sauce developed by Puckerbutt Pepper Company founder of Smokin' Ed Currie.   Pepper X is combined with distilled vinegar, ginger root, turmeric, coriander, cumin and dry mustard in the sauce.  It still is potent even in this diluted sauce is to be reckoned with. 


Jalopena Peppers - All About Them  — Scoville Heat Units: 2,500 - 8,000 SHU

🔘   What Is A Jalapeño Pepper?   A jalapeno pepper is a fruit of the Capsicum pod type. It is a medium sized hot pepper when compared to other chili peppers, measuring an average of 2-3.5 inches in length but growing up to 6 inches long or longer.   

🔘  While originating in Mexico, it is now grown worldwide for it's popular flavor and mild heat level, which averages around 5,000 Scoville Heat Units. That is hot, but not too hot.

You'll find them served when green, but if you leave the jalapeño pepper on the plant long enough, it will turn red. The red variety are just as delicious as the green jalapeño pepper, though a touch sweeter.

🔘   The Meaning Of Jalapeño  —  The name "jalapeño" is Spanish for "Jalapa" (or Xalapa), the capital of Veracruz, Mexico. Jalapeños were originally grown there, hence the name.  When smoked it becomes a Chipotle Pepper - a smoked 

🔘  The jalapeño, a little guy 2-6 inches hat can be lovingly incorporated into just about anything, and  range between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), they can be notably spicy, but they are not TOO spicy, depending on your tolerance. They are favored as they fit into more cooking situations than some of the really hot chili's that can ruin a dish.

🔘  The majority of our jalapeño peppers come from Mexico, Florida and Texas.  The red variety of the jalapeño is a bit milder than the green variety, and sweeter as well.  They are also milder than their cousin, the Serrano pepper, another popular chili pepper, though not as widely known as our favorite, the jalapeño —  A typical jalapeno pepper packs more vitamin C than an orange, so if you need your extra C, grab a jalapeno.   How much vitamin C, you ask? A single 14 gram jalapeno pepper contains 10% of your daily needs. According to Nutrition Data, a single 73 gram chili pepper contains 83%.  Jalapeños and other spicy chili peppers can also help you lose or control your weight.

🔘  Capsaicin, the chemical that makes chili peppers hot, is a thermogenic. Thermogenics stimulate the body’s burning of fat by increasing the metabolism of the body’s adipose tissue, generating heat.

For losing weight, a smart and healthy move is to drop fatty foods and replace them with some chili pepper spice, along with the inclusion of regular exercise, of course.  You can core the jalapenos to reduce the overall heat if you'd like. I like to leave the innards intact for that extra bit of kick.Jalapeños are also wonderful when roasted. You can roast them over an open flame until the skins char and bubble, then peel them off. Or you can broil or bake them to roast them.

The cayenne pepper is a type of Capsicum annuum. It is usually a moderately hot chili pepper used to flavor dishes. Cayenne peppers are a group of tapering, 10 to 25 cm long, generally skinny, mostly red-colored peppers, often with a curved tip and somewhat rippled skin, which hang from the bush as opposed to growing upright. Most varieties are generally rated at 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville units.

The fruits are generally dried and ground to make the powdered spice of the same name, although cayenne powder may be a blend of different types of peppers, quite often not containing cayenne peppers, and may or may not contain the seeds.  Cayenne is used in cooking spicy dishes either as a powder or in its whole form. It is also used as a herbal supplement.

The word ‘ cayenne’ is thought to be a corruption of the word quiínia of the Old Tupi language once spoken in Brazil, which means pepper.. It is probable that the place Cayenne in French Guiana was named after the peppers, not vice ersa, although it is commonly claimed that the pepper was named after the city. Nicholas Culpepper  for example, uses the word 'cayenne pepper' in 1652, and the city was only renamed as such in 1777. It also is possibly named for the Cayenne River.

The cayenne pepper is a type of Capsicum annuum, as are bell peppers, jalapeños, pimientos, and many others. The genus Capsicum is in the nightshade family, (Solanaceae). Cayenne peppers are often said to belong to the frutescens variety, but frutescens peppers are now defined as peppers which have fruit which grow upright on the bush (such as tabasco peppers), thus what is known in English as cayenne peppers are by definition not frutescens.

In the 19th century, modern cayenne peppers were classified as C. longum, this name was later synonymised with C. frutescens. Cayenne powder, however, has generally been made from the bird’s eye peppers, in the 19th century classified as C. minimum.

Cayenne peppers are long, tapering, 10 to 25 cm long, generally skinny, mostly red colored peppers, often with a curved tip and somewhat rippled skin, which hang from the bush as opposed to growing upright. There are many specific cultivars, such as:

•  Cow-horn,  •  Cayenne Sweet  •   Cayenne Buist’s Yellow   •  Golden Cayenne  •   Cayenne Carolina  •   Cayenne Indonesian  •   Joe’s Long   •  Cayenne Large Red Thick  •   Cayenne Long Thick Red   •  Ring of Fire   •  Cayenne Passion     Cayenne Turkish  •   Thomas Jefferson   •  Cayenne Iberian   •  Egyptian Cayenne   •  Cayenne Violet    •   Numex Las Cruces Cayenne  •

Although most modern cayenne peppers are colored red, yellow and purple varieties exist, and in the 19th century yellow varieties were common. Most types are moderately hot, although a number of mild variants exist. Most varieties are generally rated at 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville units, although some are rated at 20,000 or less. 

Cayenne powder may be a blend of different types of peppers.  Cayenne powder is distinguished from other chili powder, as it is made from cayenne peppers only, whereas chili powder is generally a mixture of multiple varieties of chili pepper, and may include other spices. It is used in its fresh form, or as dried powder on seafood, all types of egg dishes (deviled eggs, omelettes, soufflés), meats and stews, casseroles, cheese dishes, hot sauces, and curries.



Multi - Cultural Phenom And A Touch Of Insanity  —  Chili peppers have been a part of the human diet in the world since at least 7500 BC. There is archaeological evidence at sites located in southwestern Ecuador that chili peppers were domesticated more than 6000 years ago, and is one of the first cultivated crops in the Central and South Americas that is self-pollinating.

Christopher Columbus was one of the first Europeans to encounter them in the Caribbean, and called them "peppers" because they, like black and white pepper of the Piper genus known in Europe, have a spicy hot taste unlike other foodstuffs. 

Upon their introduction into Europe chilis were grown as botanical curiosities in the gardens of Spanish and Portuguese monasteries. But the monks experimented with the chilis' culinary potential and discovered that their pungency offered a substitute for black peppercorns, which at the time were so costly that they were used as legal currency in some countries.

Chilies were cultivated around the globe after Columbus. Diego Álvarez Chanca, a physician on Columbus' second voyage to the West Indies in 1493, brought the first chili peppers to Spain, and first wrote about their medicinal effects in 1494.

From Mexico, at the time the Spanish colony that controlled commerce with Asia, chili peppers spread rapidly into the Philippines and then to India, China, Indonesia, Korea and Japan. They were incorporated into the local cuisines.  Above: Scottish Bonnets, Serrano, and Jalopena, a chili menage of the most commonly used.

The Jalopena ( green right) is the most common pepper used due probably to availability.  When it comes to peppers, being beautiful and popular does not make one hot. To meet the demand, Jalapeño breeding has promoted varieties that are pretty, easy to ship and easier to grow in cooler climates.  Originally,  they used to be grown mostly in the high deserts of New Mexico, Arizona, and Northern Chihuahua and Sonora, Mexico. 

Hot, dry climates promote the production of capsaicin, the chemical that makes a hot pepper hot. Now, some varieties can be grown in wetter, cooler climates that don’t create enough heat for a super spicy chile pepper. If you like hot , leave the seeds and the pith in when you cut them.

Most Indian Restaurants use predominantly Long thin green cayenne or finger chillies, they have a good taste and high heat level and can be added chopped, sliced or whole as required. In most Indian food, Chili peppers gives the curry its heat and can be used in whole fresh form, chili powder, whole or crushed dried chilies or as chili sauce or paste.  

In Jamaican and some other Caribbean  dishes the Scottish Bonnet on the left  is the key to “Jerk Chicken”.  Related and more like a brother to the Habanero than a cousin would be.

As well as heat, chilies can add some subtle dimensions of flavor which can be dramatically different from one chili to the next and from one intestine to another.  

Habanero and the similar and usually swapped with Scottish Bonnet chilies have a beautiful buttery, oaky and vanilla tones but are so hot that most people can’t really take them as a snack,  here is the solution.  Sliced in half, then de-pithed and de-seeded, cooked they are tolerable by western standards, undercook and you need a fire extinguisher.  

In Thai food chili's are life itself.  Nam phrik are Thai chili pastes, similar to the Indonesian and Malaysian sambals. Each region has its own special versions. 

The wording”Nam phrik” is used by Thais to describe any paste containing chilies used for dipping. “Dum phrik” is used to describe a westerner who eats the paste raw.... like the raw seed version here which is basically the local oil cooked and melded with the seeds.  

NOTE: This stuff is not for beginners, Klingons from another world maybe, not humans.  You sometimes see dishes like this in some LAO or THAI restaurants and be very careful.  
This is a dipping sauce similar to an acid-bath.

A Must Read Is The Chili Bible  —  This is the Bible of Chili’s and has one of the best Chili charts with pictures and explanations of what you need to know before the fire department comes to your home and you were accused of trying to shut your husband or wife up once and for all.  A really inclusive and well done website. 


The Jamaicans, and several other Caribbean islands do heat with the Scotch Bonnet, a cute little pepper (probably one of the prettiest) that can remove your esophagus while you are attempting to put the fire out with a Jamaican Red Stripe Beer.  But they cook it...

The clue is the puddle on the floor where it ate a hole straight down your body where your tongue used to be.  You won't be laughing after one of these. See the page on Chilis to see where they are in the Chili world.  Any thing hotter could do really do severe damage, notice I said damage, not discomfort.

Scotch Bonnets can cause extreme pain if they come in contact with your eyes. Be sure to wear protective latex gloves, glasses, even a mask while handling the chiles and the jerk paste if you are handling a decent amount, like at our Jamaican Festival and dont rub your eyes.  

I am dead serious about this. I usually cut the Bonnet stem and top off, cut into fours, discard any and all seeds or membranes, rinse the pieces and dice or mince wearing surgical gloves. Many times if one or two for a dish, I will do it under a running faucet. 

For the two and a half years I lived and worked in Jamaica developing a rental vehicle business for tourists, visiting Montego Bay arriving by plane or those on Cruise ships.  We referred many visitors to the "House on the Hill" in Montego Bay for the nice local luncheon they served . 

Unfortunately, some guests did not pay attention to the warning from the middle school servers that that beautiful yellow, orange, green or red Scottish Bonnet pepper was for garnish. There was always someone from NY who grew up on those hot Italian "finger peppers" who thought he could tackle an uncooked Scottish Bonnet.   We had the visitors following a map in their dune buggies to arrive at the location about 12:30 for a luncheon.  

One was serious enough as he had a heart condition and we barely got him back to the infirmary on the cruise ship and I almost went to their next port.

That was a mistake.  Repeated warnings and speeches did not work for the guests not to eat them nor the owner for putting them out,  till I cancelled trips to the mountain retreat.   The owner was upset, but he got the message.  He came to my office and we had a conversation and a compromise. 

He hung the Habaneros on strings in clear plastic in clumps for decorations and small signs indicating not to eat them but he had sauce for sale.  Which when mixed with other ingredients  pith removed and seeds pitched made a hot but not lethal sauce. 

I solved the problem by letting him make a sauce of the Scottish Bonnets by toning them down with de-pithing, de-seeding, cooking, adding water, vinegar, mustard and oil.  We made a center piece like a tree with the bonnets tied real tight to little branches, quite pretty, and a sizable sign, not to eat the fruit, use the sauce.  He sold a lot of sauce and thanked me everyday as he made money with the sauce and no hospital runs. He made nothing but grief with his way.

The hospital in Montego Bay knew how to handle it when some jerks did not pay attention.  With a massive milkshake of milk and vanilla Ice cream to stop the tissue burning and for some blisters and the eventual stomach distress.  
Sometimes a paste of baking soda might slow the tissue damage down followed by the garden hose flush which might cool things down if you don’t drown.  Milk is still the best.  No milk, find a cow and there are four spigots under the tail.  Four idiots can be saved at a time.

But adding age and a prior heart condition can kill you — I use a lot of peppers but withe the utmost of caution and the newest monsters I won’t fool with.

I am not out to prove my manhood by eating those hot peppers straight as I have seen some Neanderthals try to do.    Peppers like Habaneros can and do vary in Scoville units as much as one Habanero can be twice a strong as another. 

In some cases 70,000 Scoville difference.  Today the Habaneros are at the bottom of the chain as to killer potential, but as you have read, someone is always out to raise to greatness and claim to breed the worlds hottest pepper.  This is why I recommend you wear gloves, wear glasses, and Do Not Touch your eyes while handling them. If you cannot handle a Habanero something ten to fifteen times stronger will harm you.  Remember in hero-land where all the drunk wing eaters go, they don’t count the dead ones…

Again, you cut off the tops, half or quarter them, dump the seeds under running water, remove the membrane and rinse, dice or mince.  You cook early with them. The more raw they are, the more powerful.  Cooking mellows them.  If you dump the seeds in your garbage disposal let the water run and I throw coffee grinds or ice cubes to flush the system.

Do not go overboard. In this recipe we are using it as a marinade. They would be putting them in a blender or crusher ( a Flat roc and a round rock and basting with it in Jamaica.  If I slow cook it in the oven, I baste only once or twice.   No civilians were injured killed or maimed while basting with cooked Habaneros. In a worst case scenario you could put a taxi meter in your bathroom for those claiming to be unaffected by hot peppers.


THE GHOST PEPPER - 2007-2011  👻

Recently, in the first decade of the 21st century, the Chili war has escalated to new highs in popularity with a few new chili’s to be added to the Bi-annual Esophagus Onslaught.  (BEO)  The Ghost Pepper (Bhot Jolokia) aka ghost pepper, ghost chili pepper, red naga chili  and the ghost chili is an interspecific hybrid first cultivated in the Indian states of Assam and Nagaland. It grows in the Indian states of Assam, Nagaland and Manipur and is exported.   Perhaps the Indians are smart enough not to eat this stuff.

Technical Chit-Chat  —  Capsicum.Chinense, commonly known as the “ Bonnet pepper”  is a species of chili pepper native to the Americas. 

Capsicum.    Chinense varieties are well known for their exceptional heat and unique flavors.  The hottest peppers in the world are members of this species, with Scoville Heat Unit scores of over 1.5 million.   

Some taxonomists consider them to be part of the species Capsicum.Annuum, and they are a member of the Capsicum.Annuum complex. 

Capsicum.Annuum and Capsicum.Chinense pepper plants can generally be identified by the number of flowers or fruit per node.  

However—one for Capsicum.Annuum and two to five for Capsicum.Chinense, though this method is not always correct.  The two species can also hybridize and generate inter-specific hybrids.  It is believed that Capsicum.Frutescens is the ancestor to the species.  

Idiots galore ther are lots of Ghost pepper sauces, dips, seeds on the market— I am not encouraging it.

It is this interbreeding process and experimentation by breeders that is producing monster Chili’s with Scoville temps as high as 3 million plus and sooner or later someone will pay the price.  Few things can stop the damage besides drowning.  The newest are far more dangerous than pepper spray and the Indian arm forces currently are using it in crowd control as are others.

There was initially some confusion and disagreement about whether the Bhot pepper was a Capsicum.Frutescens or a Capsicum.Chinense pepper, but DNA tests showed it to be an interspecies hybrid, mostly with some Capsicum.Frutescens genes. 

(NEWSER) – The ghost pepper is one of the world's hottest peppers, with a Scoville rating of more than a million. So it might follow that you shouldn't ingest it in more than tiny quantities.

And yet, the Journal of Emergency Medicine reports on the unusual case of a man who tore a hole in his esophagus after eating an incredibly hot ghost pepper.

The 47-year-old American ( We call them Schmucks)  ate a burger topped with a "ghost pepper puree" as part of an eating contest. YouTube is rife with video of people eating these things, so you can probably guess how this one went:    The man started vomiting, profusely. He threw up so much, in fact, that he caused a tear to form in his esophagus—a rare condition known as Boerhaave syndrome.

When his pain continued to get worse, the man called emergency responders. Eagle-eyed doctors were able to diagnose the tear, and the man's life was saved with emergency surgery. He spent 23 days in the hospital recovering from the incident—the costs of which which we can safely assume far outweighed whatever the prize was in the eating contest.

While this particular case had a terrifying complication, the authors of the study note that normally, ghost peppers cause “ no significant adverse effects.”  (To those who lived)

There are many varieties of these peppers and they come in all colors, but the common denominator is they can be in the hands of a moron dangerous.


Guinness World Records

In 2007 —  Certified that the Ghost Pepper (Bhot Jolokia) was the world’s hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.

In 2009, India’s DRDO  — Bhut Jolokia —  Announced plans to use the peppers in hand grenades, as a non lethal way to flush out "terrorists" from their hideouts and to control rioters. It will also be developed into pepper spray as a self-defense product.  R. B. Srivastava, the director of the Life Sciences Department at the New Delhi headquarters of India’s Defense Research and Development Organization said bhut jolokia-based aerosol sprays could be used as a “ safety device", and "civil variants" of chili grenades could be used to control and disperse mobs.

UPDATE  1,000 people survived ? Copenhagen’s Chili Klaus Event  —  Copenhagen’s Chili Klaus organized an event on June 5, 2014 at which 1,000 people ate the notorious Ghost Chili (bhutjolokia), at around 1,000,000 heat units on the Scoville scale, one of THE hottest chili peppers known to man.  

And the results were painful to say the least.  And not even liquid could douse the heat. As our friends at Digg have noted: ‘Don’t worry, milk was provided. Which also led to a lot of people vomiting up spicy milk.   

These volunteers watched as the chilis were trotted out in a locked, fire-engine red case. Then, with communion hands, they received the thumb-sized red pepper wrapped in sealed plastic bags. 

Some smelled it, others ventured a lick, most looked around with excited trepidation. Then, at the strike of the church bell, they simultaneously inhaled the little devil and waited.  How utterly torturous is that bite? 

It's enough to make grown men and women call out in pain, weep openly, crouch down in the fetal position, and vomit in public.  So, you know, not that hot, way beyond hot and for some dangerous.  I have no frickin idea why someone would sponsor this type of event and why some people were stupid enough to participate.

The hospital was busy that day and people got sick.  This is just stupid.

The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion (Capsicum chinense) is native to the district of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago. On February 13, 2012 the New Mexico State University's Chile Pepper Institute identified the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as the hottest chili of the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville Heat Units and individual plants capable of heat of more than 2 million Scoville Heat Units.

Paul Bosland, a chili pepper expert and director of the Chile Pepper Institute, said that, "You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty.

Aside from the heat, the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga has a tender fruit-like flavor, which makes it a sweet-hot combination. The pepper can be grown from seeds in most parts of the world. 

In North America, the growing season varies regionally from the last spring hard frost to the first fall hard frost. Freezing weather ends the growing season and kills the plant but otherwise they are perennials which grow all year, slowing in colder weather.  Do not cut without eye protection and gloves.

WARNING:  Ghost peppers range from 855,000 to 1,041,427 Scoville heat units (SHU) on the pepper scale.  Moruga Scorpion peppers range from 1,200,000 SHU to 2,000,000 SHU. So that makes two things true: The hottest Ghost pepper will always be milder than the mildest Trinidad Moruga Scorpion.


WINNER - 2013’s  

On December 26, 2013,  the Guinness World Records declared the Carolina Reaper the world’s hottest pepper, dethroning the short lived Trinidad Moruga Scorpion.  The Carolina Reaper is a hybrid chili pepper of the Capsicum chinense species, originally called the "HP22B", bred by cultivator Ed Currie, who runs PuckerButt Pepper Company in Rock Hill, South Carolina. 

The Carolina Reaper was rated as the world’s hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records according to 2012 tests, averaging 1,569,300 SHU on the Scoville scale with peak levels of over 2,200,000 SHU. 

The previous record-holder was the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. The cost to Currie of obtaining the evidence to claim the Guinness record was US $12,000.

From PuckerButt: This is the World Record Hottest Chili, Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper pepper, formerly known as HP22B. It is beautiful with a bright red rough surface and a long stinger. 

But don’t let looks fool you! This pepper got its name for a reason. If you are stupid enough to eat this pepper whole, you may wish to enter the doors of death willingly.  Be very, very careful using this pepper. Those who don’t fear the Reaper are fools.  Do not cut without eye protection, a face mask, and gloves.

Again, the Carolina Reaper, originally named the HP22B, is a cultivar of the Capsicum chinense plant. The pepper is red and gnarled, with a small pointed tail. In 2013, Guinness World Records dubbed it the hottest chili in the world, surpassing the previous record holder, the Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T”... ... ...  But something is brewing on the horizon..



CLAIM:  As of September 2017, the hottest chili pepper known is PEPPER X  having a Scoville scale of 3.18 million units.  Pepper X is the temporary name for a Capsicum chili pepper bred by Ed Currie, creator of the Carolina Reaper. Pepper X resulted from multiple cross breedings which produced an exceptionally high content of capsaicin in the locules of the pepper.  

Selection of a new name depends on whether the taster lives or not.  It is further rumored that the owner of Tesla and Space-X Elon Musk was testing the Pepper X in liquid form as a new propellant for his neat Cars and Space ships —   

Pepper X was made into a sauce for the YouTube series Hot Ones.  Currie stated that it is “  two times as hot as the Carolina Reaper” which would make it the hottest pepper in the world with a Scoville scale of 3.18 million units, but this is unconfirmed by the Guinness World Records or the mortician who buried the trial team.  The Dr. said not enough meat on the bones to determine cause, they were burnt crispy with four inch holes where their rectums used to be as the cause of death.

Hot Ones Collaboration - The Last Dab  —  The Pepper X is the pepper ingredient of 'The Last Dab'.  It was announced to replace Blair’s Mega Death Sauce as the hottest sauce in the lineup for Season 4.  As of September 14, 2017, the sauce is available for sale. Pepper X was first shown on the First We Feast channel on September 19, 2017, in the video titled Everything You Need to Know About The Last Dab, the Hottest Sauce on Hot Ones.

Pepper X is safe for consumption in The Last Dab hot sauce by Puckerbutt Pepper Company. The first 1,000 bottles of hot sauce sold out in two minutes but is available for pre-order on Heatonist.

Pepper X is set to take the crown for the world’s hottest pepper, dethroning the official record holder the Carolina Reaper.   

Pepper X (pictured) clocked in at a whopping 3.18 million Scoville heat units and has been developed over 10 years +3   For reference, Jalapeno’s are a mild 10,000 to 20,000 Scoville units. 

Scoville units measure capsaicin, the chemical that triggers spicy sensation. 

Because of this, Pepper X is safe for consumption in the The Last Dab hot sauce developed by Puckerbutt Pepper Company founder of Smokin' Ed Currie.   Pepper X is combined with distilled vinegar, ginger root, turmeric, coriander, cumin and dry mustard in the sauce.

Again, the first 1,000 bottles of hot sauce sold out in two minutes but it is available on pre-order.  Deliveries were expected as soon as the bodies were removed...  Currie announced the new pepper at Chelsea Market in New York during a filming of a “ First We Feast” “ Then you die”  YouTube episode.

Please Take Note  —  ‘It’s twice as hot as the Reaper at 1.6 million, so this is a dangerous pepper.’  It’s demented father,  Mr. Currie says the Dragon’s Breath chili is hotter than the Reaper but less so than Pepper X.  It comes in at a mild 2.48 Scoville units and is potentially lethal. 

According to LiveScience, eating a pepper this hot can send your immune system into overdrive and trick your body into thinking it is experience real, extreme heat and possible brain damage.  Some claim those trying this were brain-damaged anyway.

For the same reason, Pepper X should not be consumed alone.  The hot sauce is described as:  'More than simple mouth burn, Pepper X singes your soul. Starting with a pleasant burn in the mouth, the heat passes quickly, lulling you into a false confidence.  'You take another bite, enjoying the mustard and spice flavors. This would be great on jerk chicken, or Indian food!   

But then, WHAM!  All of a sudden your skin goes cold and your stomach goes hot, and you realize the power of X.’  Currie submitted the evidence that Pepper X is the world’s hottest pepper and said he expects to hear back in November as soon as some of the testers  get released from the hospital. 

😋  Unconfirmed Note —  It was reported on the Redneck One Channel that hot pepper enthusiast Hiram Bigassman ate one of these X’s raw.  

One fart from Hiram because of this pepper set fire to a thousand acres of his prime swampland, killing everything in sight. Raccoons, alligators, snakes, squirrels, birds, and the only survivor was his prize winning snapping turtle named Dorfagonah who holds the record of seven fingers from handlers, he thought they tasted like chicken… 

You’ll remember Dorfagonah as he appeared in many movies starring Godzilla.  He played Varan.  ( see pic)  He received an Enema Award for his part in the movie by the Japanese Wasabi Association.   

Update:  Hiram was taken to the hospital for severe burns to his butt.  The oxygen in the room combined with X residue and the laser the doctor used,  created a spark which lit off and burnt the whole hospital down. The doctors advised him to kick back a notch and only use Crystal Sauce or Catsup if he survives.

Warning And We’re Not Kidding  —  I joke a lot about peppers, I love and use them in my cooking within common sense and reason.  So I’ll get serious, they can inflict pain and skin damage.  I cook with Jalopena, Habaneros, Serranos and some Thai Small Red Chillies.  Sanity prevails!

After touching or handling hot peppers always remember to wash your hands with a product containing some acidity or a touch of lime or lemon juice. Some of these peppers are smoking hot and if not properly handled will temporarily damage skin tissue.  

Screen Shot 2022-06-30 at 1.07.38 PM

Never rub your eyes if handling peppers even from Jalopena’s, Habaneros, even Serrano’s.  I wear safety glasses or my hospital grade shield for splashes when I am de-pithing or de-seeding hot peppers.  Eye tissue is easily damaged or worse  wounded by these peppers and can be permanent. If contact is made put your head under the sink and turn on the cold water. 

When sharing your hot peppers with others, please let them know to use with caution.  I have witnessed fools who took this advice for granted and really didn’t know what they were getting into, crying like babies in the hospital with severe burns.  

Others were negligent and didn’t wash and rubbed their eyes.  Took three days of hospital care and flushing to heal. The clinic bill brought further tears to the idiot since this was self inflicted and most insurances question stupidity as a disease.  I think it runs in some families. It can and will burn eye tissue and cause severe problems requiring professional help.

Emergency Treatment  —  Hot Pepper  —

  1. Do not drink beer. Water won’t help either.  Capsaicin, the chemical that makes a hot pepper hot, doesn’t dissolve in water, so even ice water won’t help remove the heat.  
  2. Your best bet, Get milk, No milk, find a cow you can climb under,  pull on one of the four available nozzles!  Because capsaicin is fat-soluble, a compound in milk can actually pull the capsaicin off your tongue and relieve some of the burn.  

  3. Another option:  Eat bread or rice to absorb the heat. Then spit it out. Cucumbers can also have a cooling effect.

  4. Hot Chilis are safe - Experiments have been conducted squirting chili oils directly onto the stomach lining and no adverse effects were seen. The pain of hotness is entirely a nerve signaling thing and is not a real pain from damage of any kind. 

  5. Birds are immune and do not have appropriate receptors and are immune to chilis so they eat them and spread their seeds efficiently.  So till you grow feathers and can fly,  avoid them.  Use in your bird-feeder - The upshot of this is you can treat the seed in your bird feeder with chilis so the squirrels can’t eat it, but it doesn’t bother the birds at all.  

  6. Tolerance - For the uninitiated a modest amount of chili pepper causes unpleasant pain when consumed and will mask the flavors of the dish it is included in. Repeated exposure, however, causes the chili specific nerve receptors to become much less sensitive to chili heat. 

  7. After-burner - If you notice stinging at your nether orifice a day or so after eating hot chilis you are not eating enough hot chilis. The digestion adjusts and this problem goes away. 

  8. Vitamins - Hot red chilis are extremely high in vitamin A, but have good doses of vitamin C as well as folic acid, potassium and antioxidants. They are low sodium and very low carbs. 

  9. Diabetes - The capsaicin (the hot stuff) in chili peppers have been shown effective in controlling blood glucose levels in persons suffering from type-II diabetes, with the effect still evident in fasting levels in the morning. 

  10. Endorphin Rush - Chilis have been found to provide many people with an “ Endorphin rush” similar to that achieved by joggers but with a lot less effort, risk and damage to the joints 

  11. Sweating and Digestion - Hot chilis are very popular in practically all tropical areas because they induce sweating which cools the body. They are also a digestive stimulant which helps a lot in hot weather

  12. Cooking Helps - The heat level of fresh chillies is reduced somewhat with the length of cooking so add them earlier if you like it milder and later if you prefer it hotter.  Always add chili in whatever form a little at a time, you can always add some more if needed but you can’t take it out once you have overdone it.

  13. Speed Chills - Chili powder will permeate the rest of the sauce most readily.  It blends and adds heat real fast. If you finely chop fresh chillies, you will need to cook them for a while to add the heat to the sauce.  Powder is fast, cooking is slower but more flavorful to some. I slow cook.

  14. Whole and sliced chillies will add their heat mainly when eaten directly. Adding chili powder to a finished dish is not a good way to add heat as the spices need to be worked in to the dish which is difficult once served.

Anaheim* Very mild. Six to eight inches in size and deep, shiny green. Often stuffed or added to salsas.

Ancho: Dried or fresh poblano pepper. Dried anchos are flat, wrinkled, and heart shaped. They range in color from very dark red to almost black. Anchos are mild to moderately hot and often soaked and ground for use in sauces.

Cayenne:  From four to twelve inches in length. Deep green, yellow, orange, or red. Long, skinny, and wrinkled in appearance. Hot in taste.

Cherry*  Round and red like a cherry. Sold fresh or pickled in jars, these peppers range from mild to moderately hot.

 Habanero*   AKA Scotch Bonnet:  Popular and commonly found, typically yellow-orange but they can be green, red, yellow or orange. These peppers are lantern shaped and typically about 2 inches long. The hottest pepper grown commercially with a unique floral flavor and an extremely intense heat that affects the nasal passages. They are sold fresh and in glass acid proof jars.  

The Habanero is the blowtorch of the usual cooking chili family and the hottest usually available in US groceries. You can seed and de-pith habaneros to lower the heat, but when working with them, wear gloves and keep your hands away from your face, especially do not touch your eyes. I wear protective eyeglasses. Once burned, you do the same.

  Jalapeño*   Most often green when mature but sometimes red. They are very medium hot, with an immediate bite. Use whenever recipe simply calls for hot chile peppers. They can be fresh or canned. When smoked, Jalapeños are called chipotles.  

The Jalapeño is probably one of the most common cooking peppers.  Heat wise Jalapeños for some extroverts are tolerable but most folks like them de-pithed and de-seeded if needed and add great taste with subdued heat when cooked.ños are dark green and will go red when left on the vine longer if you grow your own.  Most chilis are easy to grow. If you like jalapeños go there.

 The Poblano*    Poblano peppers look like small bell peppers and are mild to hot on the hotness scale. They can be fresh or canned and flavorful.  Used in many dishes where ordinary green peppers do nothing for the dish.

  Serrano*   Sold as red or mature green and about 1 to 4 inches in length. Moderate to very hot with an intense bite. Can be found canned, pickled, or packed in oil with vegetables. Often served in Thai or Mexican dishes.

🌐  I live in Tampa, Florida and one of many convenient sources I use for Chilies is Publix SuperMarkets, Jalapeño’s  Habanero’s, Poblano’s, and Serrano’s.  I also because of our great diversity here have access to several ethnic supermarkets specializing in Thai, Philippine, Korean, with Indian and Chinese for specialty or hard to find proprietary chilies and other items kin to their diets.  

I use them in a lot of cooking. The selection here is not bad, workable,  and Publix usually has the marked Chili's on the shelf.  Most were marked products of California but it varies during the year.  Sometimes we get Mexico, sometimes Florida.  Sometimes South America…  Quality sometimes varies since many of these are imported and are quite ripe when they get here.  I refrigerate mine to last longer and here is the process:

  1. Good quality airtight rubbermaid plastic containers:
  2. I remove the top and stem, slice in half the long way.  
  3. The HEAT is the white ‘PITH’ and the seeds. I wear construction glasses or a shield and use a hospital mask.
  4. I use a tool I made from a “Melon Baller” I sharpened the edges of the baller with a Dremel tool.  Using my tool, I remove the white ‘Pith’ and seeds wearing safety glasses and rubber gloves in one shot close to the water faucet. 
  5.  I am basically doing batch de-heating (twenty or more) so when I cook I don’t have to stop and do a chili. 
  6. I dice, slice, julienne, or chop for whatever I have planned, I have Rubbermaid containers  and that covers me for a week of cooking.  
  7. For  volume cooking I  place then in a good quality Rubbermaid containers with a little olive oil, shake it well, and squeeze a shot of lemon juice in, press to remove air or in a sealed bag removing the air with a baster, and they keep very well. 
  8. Unique, odd, not so common chilies, may be found in ethnic food stores and should be well inspected, well washed and cleaned before using.   Many import companies illegally bring in some chilis in other forms, that have not been inspected lately.  They also have dried chilies, and chilies in oil or water bottled. 
  9. I don’t care if the Pope blessed the batch you bought, you must check everything these days, there are reasons FOOD is added to POLITICIANS and THEOLOGICAL FRAUDS -  we have plenty and they get caught every day — TRUST NO ONE — 
  10. I have found dirt and unknowns in some of the local flea markets so be aware.  Many ethnic groups raise their own and take them to flea markets to sell.  I will not get gross here but fertilizer is fertilizer.  
  11.  E.Coli and Listeria, also something we thought was gone is a parasite that the State Health Department hinted that contaminated fresh produce could be the source of the Cyclospora parasites that have caused the cyclosporiasis infections and may I guide you to:


Recalls And Advisories —   Again, I know I can be annoying about safety, be careful when cutting large amounts of chilies.  Wear glasses and do not touch your eyes. Chilies contain Capsaicin and onions contain Sulfur.  When you cut chilies or slice onions the water mixes and creates in the case of the onion a mild form of sulphuric acid. Thats why it burns delicate tissue.


Caution - Pay Attention - I Did Not  —  In Las Vegas on vacation, I wanted to try an IN-N OUT burger joint since they were not in Tampa nor east of the Mississippi.  

Next to the napkins there were two small trays of peppers, I love peppers, all peppers, Jalapeños to Habanero’s, and I rarely cook anything without some kind of pepper, they are the universal condiment of the world grown in all countries and they come in different flavors and strengths.   And no other chain of plebeian burgers serves or offers hot peppers. The further they go in condiments is a packet of hot sauce.

I use mainly mild to mild-medium peppers always when I’m cooking.  I’m very cautious about feeding anything to my guests, and there are lots of homegrown product in the pepper field and anything including Listeria, Salmonella, E.coli and a few other unknowns are all too common.   

Anything I get from a farmers market gets washed outside my house before it even comes inside, then cleaned again.  Dirt, bugs etc, house rules.  I can add heat if needed, but deleting Listeria is not that easy combined with lots of other things found in raw foods.  I get the government reports almost daily on recalls and “dirty food”.

I like to cook internationally, favoring the unique flavors and spices of Thai, Indian, Middle east and Japanese dishes and fairly familiar with most peppers on this planet.   Many of which are grown by folks from that part of the world. Since my stomach is from this part of the world I am cautious as any good chef has to be.

The peppers looked great and clean. The guy next to us was munching on them like peanuts, so I thought they were just like Italian Finger peppers, or Chicago Hot Dog peppers, they must be OK.   I could not see his name tag on his jacket but it could have been Mestopheles for all I know.  

I bit into one, chomped it fine and swelled  and ten minutes later,  I’m on fire, I lit up,  and an hour later I was still on fire.  It stopped at the pharmacy in the hotel, bought a bottle Pepto Bismol, a half hour in the hotel room, went downstairs and bought a container of milk from a local market store near the garage  and a package of Tums made into powder tablet dissolving on my tongue to put the fire out.  

Holy Sh.t!  These were most volatile anything I ever tasted. The company named them “Hot Chili Peppers”.  They were not joking.  

And maybe these served at the store in Vegas may be localized to Vegas or California or one specific vendor, because of TEX-MEX influence and demographics and hotter peppers are more popular in the SouthWest.  I'm not sure of that.

I believe that store, or the chain something that looked  like the milder chilli.  A rogue manager might have purchased something local that looked like what they were used to serving and this batch of lookalikes was volatile.  

They are offered as takeouts (see photo) at some stores.   The I-N-O net referred to them as Banana Peppers.  The web contains a whole page on searches by customers to find them, what and where to find these peppers including some statements from IN-N-OUT  They are not Banana Peppers and when they ran short, management must have thought these looked close enough.

We Now Have A Name For The Correct Pepper Commonly 

Harvested In Early Picking Because They Turn Red When Mature


And they are not like Banana Peppers.  But the Pepper industry is unique, mainly because of demand and the fact they are hardy and mutate easily.  We went into research mode, it’s what I do, and found out the sudden scarcity of Casabella peppers . Thats why the real ones from mild to medium were not in the store and someone thought they found some but they looked right but were not.

Screen Shot 2021-08-08 at 1.28.26 PM

The yellow Chile peppers usually carried by IN-IN-OUT burger are in fact Cascabella peppers.  Cascabella peppers are cone shaped and produce a chile pepper that is approximately 1 ¾” long by ¾” wide.  Cascabellas turn from yellow, to orange, to red when mature. The plant has green stems, green leaves and white flowers. This variety is thick fleshed.    

Cascabellas are spicy peppers, much spicier than pepperoncinis.  They typically range anywhere from 1,500 – 40,000 Scoville units whereas a typical Jalapeño is 2,500 – 10,000 Scoville units.  So, some Cascabellas are hotter than Jalapeño's and some aren’t.   Because they are imports, they can vary and they are not marked — It was midnight when my stomach calmed down —  But I wasn’t quite done with my research — I called the company headquarters got cut off three times and finally got thru claiming I was going to the FDA - Which I was —

Cascabella Pepper Seeds. Yes these are the famous In-N-Out burger peppers (at least the seeds to grow them). Get them while they last.  Cascabella peppers are a thick-walled small pepper that is bursting with flavor. These peppers are low-medium heat chiles when allowed to ripen to their final color, red. 

The color shift during the ripening stage goes from yellow, to orange, and finally a bright red. Usually Cascabella peppers are pickled in the yellow stage, with a dash of tumeric. These peppers taste great on salads. Our favorite is eating them straight from the jar! Capsicum Annuum (80-90 Days until maturity) Heat Level: 1,500-4,000 Scoville Heat Units 10+ Cascabella Pepper Seeds Per Pack ~10

Now the company when asked explained that California is experiencing a shortage in yellow banana pepper crops, citing that this year's demand exceeded the supply. She also said that it’s affecting multiple locations, however, the next harvest is expected to come in early summer.  It did and they are back --

The company would not disclose the supplier of these peppers.  To me that is a flag.   Also they may change brands and types to meet regional needs but I am an investigative reporter and I smell stories when it comes to food.  She would not tell me the real name of that pepper. But I can play games too and a threatening call to the National Poison Control Center got me some info.   Now they did not want a call from the PCC and that got me answers.

Calls to In-N-Out’s Southern California-based corporate headquarters to inquire about the shortage. It’s referred to the current situation as, “An industry-wide pepper shortage.” 

The "shortage" is not yet affecting the chopped chilies that can be added to fries or burgers, but if you want a side-order of whole yellow banana peppers, that's when the pepper rationing gets real.

A memo from In-N-Out, dated for May 9 and addressed to its California stores, was posted on Twitter May 15. The memo directs In-N-Out employees to keep, “ Chilies away from ketchup stations,” and to serve guests only two chilies in a “Soufflé cup per request.”  It’s like a frickin trade secret of the name of the pepper which to me is a red flag —  

Finally a name... As explained in a report by Munchies, a shortage of the small, yellow pickled peppers -- Casabella peppers -- due to a combination of factors that have affected crops, like bad weather and soil conditions.  These are the Casabella which translates as “ beautiful house".   And you can buy seeds now, plants are unavailable as of July but with seeds grow your own.   see   They start yellow but will turn red. 

Substitute  —  This is a hot topic (pun) and I think those Peppers could be substituted and are very are close to the UdupiIndian peppers in size and color and have nothing to do with Banana Peppers. 

I think they may consider importing from India so they won’t run out.  They are also called Canthari Chili’s,  also known as “ White Bird Pepper” and this variety is popular in Kerala and in Sri Lanka.   A good medium pepper —  

Small yellow white variety of chili grown in Udupi district, India, often used in chutneys and pickles” just like the Casabella’s and recently planted in the US, seeds are available for do it yourself on eBay.  India is the world’s biggest producer, consumer and exporter of chili peppers. 

Guntur in the South Indian State of Andhra Pradesh produces 30% of all the chilies produced in India.  Andhra Pradesh as a whole contributes 75% of India's chili exports.

If You Want To Grow Your Own  —  Experience Helps — In Gardening — 

Why Heirloom?  Thanks to   👉🏼 

The word “heirloom” refers to a special object that has been passed down from generation to generation and has attained value through its meaningful journey. In terms of vegetables, “heirloom” has a similar meaning, except that heirloom vegetables come from seeds that have been passed down through the generations. These are not seeds that have been manipulated in any way, such as those that produce general grocery store vegetables. Instead, they are the genesis of organic farming.

Heirloom seeds produce a consistent product year after year, whereas the hybrid seeds used in many commercial growing operations could yield completely different products one year from another. 

Additionally, through the years, heirloom seeds have evolved to flourish in their specific regions, so they are usually more resistant to disease, pestilence, and drought. Finally, you’re getting a healthier vegetable that has more flavor as well, since organically-produced vegetables contain higher amounts of nutrients and minerals from growing in healthy soil.

Types of Heirloom Peppers — Please read about each one on their website, lots of information and product descriptions and a good place you can learn about organic growing —  Most Peppers and Chili's both Sweet and hot are easily grown  —  

Fatalii  -   Lucifer’s Dream (Habanero Red ) -- Habanero Mustard Pepper -- Habanero Peach Pepper  —  Joe’s Round  —  Jalapeño Traveler Strain  — Joe’s Long Cayenne  —  Georgia Flame  —  Thai Hot  — Bhut Jolokia Ghost  —  

Growing peppers in a container or garden can be easy if you use heirloom-quality seeds that have already proven to be hearty and productive. Choose any of these peppers listed here for a guaranteed way to spice things up!
