Ghost peppers are officially terrifying!!
 
Bf had a jar of ghost peppers a friend of his grew and canned, and it's only getting older so I decided to cut one up and put it in a big batch of home made salsa. I wore gloves of course, but then I made the not so brilliant decision to touch the tip of my tongue to the knife after I was done pulverizing the pepper. OMG!! I spit in the sink to try to prevent it from working its way down my throat, and that may or may not have helped. I decided to only add almost half of the pepper. The rest went in the garbage (there are still at least 15 left in the jar). My next not so brilliant decision was to use the sprayer to rinse off the cutting board before I put it in the dishwasher. This created a lovely ghost pepper mist, which I inhaled, leaving me coughing and sneezing uncontrollably for about 5 min. Maybe it was the intense heat, maybe the coughing and sneezing, but I'm left with a mild headache and nauseous feeling to remember my first ghost pepper experience by. On the bright side, the salsa seems to have about the right amount of heat. ::rolls eyes::

I bought some ghost pepper cheese last week. I eat one slice and then spend the next 20 minutes in eye-watering pain. For some reason I never feel like having a second slice.

I cut a couple of paper thin slices off of a fresh one and put them on a cracker with some cheddar cheese. Like a bonehead, I ate them both. Almost inedible, as far as I am concerned.

Interesting Post ...

I believe there was or is a member who would or was interested in piquant chili peppers of this nature.

Thanks for posting & all the feedback and Craig, thanks for your data on topic.

Never had the opportunity to try the ghost chile......I doubt I will go out of my way to try it. I figger if it ain't good and fun to eat...what's the point?
I turned in my membership card in the official "what was I thinking when I ate that?" chilehead club a while back

I agree, Hoot. It doesn't sound tasty or fun to me.

They are useful though. When you need to fire up a large pot of chili, you don't need a bunch of them to do the job. I used 1, dried ghost pepper in a 3 gallon pot of chilli and it came out just right.

I purchased a jar of habenero peppers, as I had eaten them fresh before, without too much discomfort. The peppers in the jar were significantly hotter than were the fresh peppers. They lit me up. I use them, but sparingly.

The most foolish thing I ever did while working with hot peppers was to think that washing my hands with soap and water would protect my nether regions when I had to answer natures call. I'll only go so far as to say that the pain lasts for about 15 to 20 minutes.:ohmy: Lesson learned. I wear disposable gloves now when working with really hot peppers.
