Re: PICTURE POST II!

Some of my favorite things I could eat every day I found by ordering them not knowing what they were.

I eat a lot of the same thing at home, very simple for the most part. But if I go out I consider myself an adventurer.

Red. The kangaroo is somewhat gamey to the ungamed palate and I think red works better.

ALL CHILLIES ARE FINE FINE FINE.

I love your avatar, it makes me happy to look at chillies.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah I love them, all of them, in any form. I love fresh ones diced up on asian food, I loved pickled jalapenos..

This is the most chillie I have ever eaten in one dish (not my photo):

My mouth is watering.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Chiles are awesome.

But beware the Ghost Chile and use some sense if and when you eat them. At well over 1,000,000 Scovill units of heat per chile pepper the Ghost might be the hottest edible pepper on the entire planet.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I have never had one. I like some flavour in my chillie. That said, I would try it. Have you had it?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

One.

It was - intense. And that's an understatement. The Ghost is an outstanding pepper, but it is a unique experience. I've seen what happens when competitive eaters and television hosts eat foods prepared with one or more Ghosts ground up and added as spice and it is wild.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I know they have an illusory psychoactive effect.. or something.

It's the exit that worries me more.

As you should.

As an American food host once said and I paraphrase: "Going down can be bad enough, but it's what happens a little later on that really makes you question your own judgment!"

I don't eat much meat, but I love trying new foods, so I'd definitely try kangaroo. Bison and venison are tastier and healthier than beef. Octopus is just okay, but I love squid.

Oh geez, teacake, you wouldn't like to eat with me, then. I fully admit I eat the same things all the time. Not only am I stuck in a rut, eating-wise, I enjoy being in that rut. For me, "trying something new" is using different toppings on a hamburger or hot dog.
Then I'm quite impressed that you went to a Thai restaurant with me! And actually ate the food.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

The hotness of a pepper is determined by the amount of capsaicin within the pepper, which is located along the central, internal "spine" of the pepper where the seeds are located. A Ghost chile has the highest known capsaicin content of an edible pepper plant.

Actually if you take the seeds and "guts" out of a pepper and consequently remove the capsaicin most peppers taste mild or even bland and not hot at all.

And still only about a third the Scovilles of pepper spray. Honestly, think I'd rather be shot.

I have had one once. Probably never will again. Heat for the sake of heat never made sense to me. Chiles have such a wonderful flavor that, when it gets that hot, you really lose the flavor. Hobbies are about as hot as I'll go, and even then only in moderation.

The scale:



The Bhut Jolokia is the Ghost chile.
