Peppers

Lad I work with grows peppers, the spicy ones. Gave me an assortment of them last week. Had a bit of a go at them. The Ghost pepper was a bit spicy but not what I imagined it might be. However, The Carolina Reaper - fuck me, fire in your mouth or what????????
I think it's the hottest thing I've ever tasted. Off to investigate just where it stands in the bigger scheme of all things spicy.

We grew some peppers here last summer and my ringpiece has not been the same since.

You should start a food blog.

I have successfully grown peppers and chillies on my allotment

And chillie peppers as well.

I grow them in my little 4' by 6' greenhouse.

The little pointy red ones seem to be the most effective arse burners. I believe the variety is Terra del Fuego.

Tierra del Fuego? Land of Fire? Sounds like it should be called Culo en el Fuego (arse on fire)!

I agree. Grown some of them this year.

For about 10 years one of my mothers punch lines has been 'ohhh I've lost all taste you know, I can't taste a thing'. So I said to her 'well try one of these then'.

10 cups of water and aching sides later lol

Turns out it was a ghost pepper. Christ knows what a Carolina Reaper must taste like.

A mate of mine gets chillis from Devon, seriously hot bastards. Have had the Carolina Reaper but also had a Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. Both fecking hot as hell but good flavour. The heat from both just built and built, incredible heat which no amount of milk shifted!

Love everything about chillies except their heat and seemingly ubiquitous appearance in just about everything these days. I didnít even know what one was until I was 19 when a girlfriend suggested we go for a curry. Chuff me I thought my face was going to slide off.

Over the years ive got a bit more tolerant but still can't face anything more than the mildest background heat to the food. I remember not long back in Harrogate having a Pad Thai and sprinkling what I thought were crushed peanuts on it only to discover they were dried incendiary level chillies. In my distress I had to go to the bog but foolishly had a piss before I washed my hands. Christ, that is not something I will be doing again in a hurry

I envy all you fire eaters who enjoy the hot ones but try as I have I just can't. I'm putting that down to my Norseman-Saxon DNA  like my football skills

Mate of mine was preparing chillies for one of his home made vindaloos, but somehow got distradted. He and his then girlfriend went up to the bedroom for a romantic interlude.

It didn't end well. I'll leave you to work out why.
