Most of us enjoy a little fire and snap to our meal, some a lot more than others. Several have asked us if we carry Ghost Pepper, and the answer now is YES! Ranked 1 million in Scoville Units, you can only guess a little dab will do you. If you’re cooking chili, you’ll add a teaspoon or tablespoon to the whole pot. Any more than that, and you’ll have smoke coming out your ears!
And for those of you who used more than a dab of Ghost Pepper, milk may work, especially when it stays in your mouth. But one seasoned ghost lover said sucking on a lime helped cure the sting.
If you want something much milder, but still has a spirited spark to it, try Bird’s Eye Peppers. You’ll usually see them as dried tiny little peppers in miniature. When you add them to stews or soups, the liquid will hydrate them and release the oils and flavors. These darlings rate 100,000 in Scoville Units, which is twice as hot as peppers used in tabasco sauce.
Just remember that Stardust carries both these types of peppers. So if you’re looking to spice things up a bit in your dishes, we have what you need!
