Last week my wife and son picked up some Ghost Chili peppers at our local farmer’s market. I ended up giving those to my brother Bill to see what he thinks because he absolutely loves hot peppers and hot sauce. The only problem is I no longer had one to try myself. So, this past weekend I picked up a couple of the peppers for myself at the Greenwood Farmer’s Market and last night I took a bite out of one.
The “heat” on a spicy pepper is rated on what’s called the Scoville heat scale. The sweet or Bell pepper is rated at 0, no noticeable heat. The Jalapeno pepper is rated between 3,500 – 8,000 units. The Ghost Chili (Bhut Jolokia chili pepper) rates atÂ 855,0001,463,700 units!
