Ok, so I made another batch of the hot salsa, and sold pint jars to co-wokers for $.00 a jar. This batch had the same super-hot ingredients as the last batch. They loved it. I kept a quart for myself and enjoyed some with tortilla chips. Two days ago, I got some more salsa while I was at work, to munch on while doing some tedious computer stuff. Now this salsa had been sitting in the fridge, tightly covered for about 4 days. Also, I had eaten it just two days past. But when I began eating it, it seemed hotter than before, though one of they guys who had purchased some from the same batch tried it and said it wasn't any hotter. So after munching my chips and salsa, with my tongue and lips mildly talking to me, I was thirsty and got up to get a drink of water, not to cool the fire, as I was fine as far as my mouth went. After a couple of steps though, my stomach started to rebel. My mouth started salivating like crazy and I felt queasy. Heaven help me if it all came up and blew though my nose. Yikes!
So I got that cup of chilled water and it settled my tummy. That was the first time I have ever had a stomach reaction to that salsa.
I've been eating sauces made with ghost peppers for a couple of years now and they don't cause me any distress. But now, I using the four hottest peppers on the planet, and my mouth is Ok. My tummy on the other hand, at least yesterday, was barely up to the challenge.
Beware of eating at your limit. Too much and it can bite you.
