Now I suppose we'll have another flood of TV shows with personalities eating stuff made with this pepper and sweating on camera.

Even my own pepperhead won't do more than dip a toothpick into Dave's Insanity Sauce, then he stirs a red beer with it. That's how he tests sauces.

I never saw the sense of eating the hottest stuff you can stand. To the extent it's part of a tasty dish, I'm all for it. I just don't think dares should be part of the food experience.

Reminds me of the redneck's last words, "Oh yeah? Watch this!"

It has to have great flavor, IMO.

Heat for heat's sake doesn't do much for me. I don't sense that "endorphin rush."

Reminds me of a potluck we had at work once. One of the 20-24 year old young men brought spicy chicken wings and was bragging about how hot they were. My friend Handel asked me to try them and report just how hot they were. Handel figured they were probably inedible. I tried them and then so did Handel. They were so hot that you couldn't taste anything but hot.

The funny part is that Handel is from Guyana and makes the best hot sauce I have ever tasted. It's really hot too. 1/4 tsp flavours a potful of food and it's hot. I tried to convince him to make it commercially, but no luck. Unfortunately, for me, Handel moved away and I can't get his great hot sauce any more.

Okay

Here is a You Tube clip of the Food Network Show i was on last year where they made hot wings with the Red Savinas from my garden.

At .19 of the trailer there they are, I am in purple and that's my friend mary eating them with Aron McCargo.



Our full segment is about 3 minutes in in this clip. About The Fat Cat resturant in Quincy, MA. It might stop playing if you try to fast forward to it, unfortunately.

My peppers are the bright red ones. You can see them sitting there. He calls them scotch bonnets, but they obviously are not.

And me again! And mary kicking Big Daddy's butt!

I remember watching you on TV back when this aired.

Jennyema, I didn't spot you in the first one and the second one says, "This video contains content from Scripps, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds." Now that's weird, 'cause Canada has strict copyright laws, but it's downright weird that only one of those two is blocked.
