CAUTION  WORLD'S NO #3 HOTTEST PEPPER The ghost pepper, also known as bhut jolokia, is extremely hot. The ghost pepper measures a whopping 1,041,427 SHU! In the world of peppers, this hotness is measured based on the Scoville scale. The more Scoville heat units (SHU) that pepper has, the spicier it is. For example, the bell pepper has zero SHU, while jalapeño and chipotle peppers measure 10,000 SHU each.

Culinary Notes:

Clocking over 1 million on the heat scoville scale, the Ghost Chilli Pepper has a big chilli flavour with a mega heat hit! Due to their intense heat, only part of the pepper is needed at a time to give a big flavour and fieriness to a dish.

Health benefits:

All chillies contain capsaicin which is known to have many health benefits including boosting the immune system, eliminating inflammation and helping with weight loss. Some people are concerned that because these chillies are so hot, it could actually kill them. This is false. Although eating an extremely hot chili causes your pain receptors to react as if you are experiencing pain, it’s only an illusion. They won’t do any damage unless you have an allergy or an ulcer. You should not have a problem eating these chillies unless you know that spicy foods and hot peppers negatively affect your health. If you don’t normally eat spicy foods, it’s probably not a great idea to go straight for a Carolina Reaper, trindad scorpion or ghost chilli. Instead, ease yourself into eating the ghost peppers  by trying more mild peppers like the jalapeno first. But if you’re experimenting and discover you can’t take the heat, a glass of milk should help you recover.

Ingredients:

100% Ghost Chilli.
