Okay, I\’m all up for hot stuff, but this is just frightening. Welcome the Bhut Jolokia chili from the Assam region of India. Also known as the Ghost Pepper.
So here we go. You\’ve heard of the Scoville unit, well this is a scale of hotness and runs from minimal hot such as a green pepper at say 10-20 and then jalapenos at say 5000. Where does the bhut jolokia come in? Wait for it….can you imagine 1,000,000 Scoville units. Ouch!
Guess we will have to come up with a nice recipe featuring them. Are you joking?
