So... I was stocking up on some spices at Savory Spice shop in Boulder (If you are in CO and have not been to one of these, you are missing out!! Penzey's is also good.)
Then a jar titled "Bhut Jolokia – Ghost Pepper” caught my eye!!
The owner was nearby, so I asked if these were even a plausible ingredient. He said to just use one whole in chili, or such, and to take it out. You can then chop it up and mix with honey and vinegar to make a sauce.
I was of course intrigued, as I am a huge fine of spicy food, but I am not sure if I have gotten in over my head! I picked up a ¼ oz. for the thrill of it!
Anyone ever used these?
