the ghost pepper


phil armstrong of harvest thyme brings us bags of chile peppers, and this year we received a new pepper even for him. apparently a friend visiting from india brought him one of these peppers, he saved the seeds and planted them this year. despite a cooler and wetter  than normal growing season, this pepper is dangerously hot. we cooks pride ourselves on the amounts of pain and discomfort we are willing to withstand, so of course we dove right in after dinner service friday night. when it was time for cleaning and beers, we got out one of these chiles that have apparently been rated at up to 1 million scoville units, thats right, 4 times hotter than a habanero! if a picture is worth a thousand words, then this blog post should be worth 1,000,000…
