OVERVIEW:

This chil pepper is not for the faint of heart given that it is 4 to 5 times hotter than a habanero pepper. In early 2007, Guinness Book of Records officially recognized Bhut Jolokia "Ghost Chile" as being the world’s hottest chile. Today, it doesn't even make the top 10 hottest peppers. Ghost chile powder's flavor is said to be reminiscent of green apples and apricots but you are quickly overwhelmed by fiery intensity. A little goes a long way in dishes like chili, salsas, chutneys, curries, pickles, pizza, sauces and wings. 

 

Members of the nightshade family, chili peppers have a lot going for them. Capsaicin is the main bioactive plant compound in chile peppers and the more capsaicin it contains the hotter the chile pepper. Chile peppers have a long list of health benefits and will always provide you an abundance of vitamins and minerals. They are rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory plant compounds.
