There are peppers too hot for human consumption. As many of you know, I’m a hot pepper man. But I came to the reasonable conclusion a few years ago, than anything hotter than a habanero should not be consumed by a human. Some of these peppers, they genuinely use as mace. And some even as a spray or paste to deter elephants, from coming around, in Native lands. There is no enjoyment in them. They will literally make you sick. They can even do you severe bodily harm, including ruining your stomach lining. They have even caused death. Also any pepper above the Scoville heat unit of a Habanero has an exceedingly thin, papery membrane and is not enjoyable, not pleasantly pulpus, even if you could stomach it. As you know I raise hot peppers every year and I put up and can Peppers every year. I’m a little bit of a hot pepper aficionado. I have been told that some of the peppers I put up would be award-winning and are quite delicious. But I no longer put anything any hotter than a Habanero in my garden, much less in my mouth. And when I can Habaneros. Most times I use these Habaneros to season other peppers. When I can Habaneros by themselves, it’s generally to give to the insane. Honestly some of the Habanero’s when eating with the right things and nibbling on them in smaller portions, can legitimately be enjoyable. But I am no longer one of those insane idiots that claims to be able to eat any hot pepper on the planet. And I certainly am not going to do so. There’s a reason they make you sign those waiver papers, to eat some of these things, and wings that they put them on. They are medically dangerous. Take this is advice from somebody who really knows peppers. Let your ego go. Don’t eat anything any hotter than a habanero. And even a Habanero can generally make the average person Mighty miserable. This is meant be a word to the wise. And to save some of you a mighty bad experience.
