So here’s something I’m sure you’ve all seen by now:
Chilli Bob’s Farm’s and Tom Smith’s Plants’ dragon’s breath chilli. A tree-like plant that produces some small but supposedly extremely hot peppers with an average scoville rating of almost two and a half million.
Compared to the average heat of the current record holder, the carolina reaper (between 1.4 and 1.57 million, depending on when you take the record from), this is a massive step up. It even beats out the reaper’s 2.2 million peak.
Such a stunning heat difference that it has been all over the news and in social media feeds across the globe.
Hello again everyone, this week I’m going a little off schedule and bringing you an extra little bonus recipe. After all, what better way is there to celebrate the season of giving than with a free gift for you and a free shout out to one of my fellow food bloggers, Dana from I’ve Got Cake?
You see, I’m not bringing you my own creation today but rather adapting one of hers. With this, the 7-pod or 7-pot brainstrain:
According to various sources, this little sucker peaks at over 1.4 million scoville, making it the Guinness Book of Records’ third hottest chilli in the world but I cannot confirm with any degree of certainty whether that is the case. Guinness themselves don’t list any chilli that hasn’t once held the top spot.
Hello everyone and welcome to my first review of november.
This week was all set to be business as usual with another of my product samples from The Chilli Alchemist but, just a few days ago, my new twitter PR guy came up with something different. Something halloween themed. Something that looked a lot like this:
In fact, that’s exactly what it was. Thousand Hills’ Screaming Pumpkin Chilli Jam.
Today I have for you a special offering from the chilli pepper company, made in conjunction with the Fire Breathing Idiot, Ted Barrus.
Some of you will know the guy, while some of you may be less familiar with his work but Ted is another chilli reviewer, preferring to put out sensationalist videos rather than written reviews.
From the way he can describe chillies and sauces professionally in a single take, the man clearly has a lot of skill but his challenge oriented approach and ridiculous video effects made me quite unclear what to expect of a sauce tailored to his tastes.
