Do you all like hot peppers.  My friend Steve brought me these this morning.   He grew them.  There's Carolina Reapers, Chocolate Reapers, Scotch Bonnets, Red Chiles, Tabasco peppers and Aji  Citos.   I don't know what I'm going to do with most of them.  The red Chilis and Tobascos are as hot as I prefer.   There's enough Scoville Units in this bowl to melt the polar ice caps.

Steve says the Aji Cito peppers (the yellow ones) are really good.

Looks good, eat what you can, we like to make pepper sauce, hard part is go to the store and get a 4 pack of grolsch, I can't remember the spelling, they make great pepper sauce bottles, then drink the beer, or offer it to a neighbor, boil the bottle then stuff with peppers, then boil some vinegar, or apple cider vinegar and pour over the peppers, seal the bottle and set in the fridge for a couple of months or more, great on peas or greens

Love me some hot peppers. I grow poblanos, Anaheims, jalapenos, Serranos, cayenne and Thai Dragons. I don't go for the super-hot ones; I still like the underlying flavor of the chile, and it's easy enough to add more heat in the form of dried Dragons if I think something lacks sufficient zip.

I might try that. I have a few flip top bottles that I have collected over the years. I knew a guy who brewed his own beer and he would buy Grolsch bottles from us to use for his beer.

I do like Jamaican Jerk chicken. I may use the Scotch Bonnets to make some jerk marinade. I eat Jerk chicken and little beads of sweat pop out on my eyebrow.

Looks good. I like me some hot peppers but I don't like torturing myself. If it were me I'd pickle them. Clean and de-stem. (I'd leave the seeds, but If you remove them be careful. I just about suffocated myself on once de-seeding a bunch of habaneros.)

I'd put them fresh in a jar with a few cloves of garlic, maybe some dill. Boil apple cider vinegar with quite a bit of salt in it. dump over the peppers and seal the jar hot. Then I'd put it on display and give it at least a month to fully pickle. When I got ready to eat them I'd just blend the whole contents of the jar down to a sauce, or more of a relish. Apply to food sparingly lol.

Ifin it makes yer head sweat and yer eyes water, you know it’s jest right

saying that, I like the taste of most peppers, some are just hot, I'm not into just heat, but a good pepper with good flavor can be hot and still nice

That is one pretty bowl of peppers, but...
I have fully admitted often, in one form or another, that I am less a man than many of you. My tolerance, once I left Southern New Mexico, reduced to nearly entirely intolerant of peppers.
I do like a dash or two of Louisiana or Mexican style hot sauce. Or a milder hatch chile Or a sprinkle of chili powder. But between early damage to tummy, and hyper-tenderness down there where the blue bears are always wiping...hot peppers are not for me.

Enjoy them, if you can. Please pass me the black pepper or the paprika. ;-) brad

The heat doesn't impress me much. I like the savory strong green pepper taste.
Some days, I'll eat a green pepper instead of an apple.
Stuffed & baked Anaheims are all I need with Jalapeno Tabasco sauce.

The nice Tabasco people have a very good on line cook book.

Can you get hold of some goat to go with those scotch bonnets? Jamaican curry goat is awfully good.

There was a time, when I was in my 20s, (forty odd years ago), when I would boast that I could eat a hotter chile pepper than any man alive. Back then, the hottest obtainable was the Habañero. I still like 'em, but in moderation.

A few years back while at a new years day party, someone brought some ghost peppers. Without hesitation I grabbed one and ate it. What are these? About 1 million Scoville units?

The shocked onlookers asked "Is it hot?" And in a raspy, breathy voice I replied "yeah.....it's hot!"
As the oils spread though my mouth, and into my sinuses, they actually got into my ear canals. (que the cartoon characters with steam coming out of their ears).

It took 15 excruciating minutes for the burn to subside.

I'd met my match. After that, I have absolutely no interest in trying the Reaper. I'll watch, with amused amazement while someone else claims that they can eat a hotter chile pepper than any man alive!

Yep.  The Reaper clocks in from 1.4 to 2.2 million SHU

I remember the first time I ate a pickled jalapeño. I was about 14 years old and visiting my aunt and uncle that lived in Irving Texas. We went to a Mexican restaurant and they had some sliced jalapeños. My aunt Ruth ate one and I did too. Everything I ate after that tasted like jalapeño. Being from Missouri, I didn't have any experience with jalapeños. I didn't touch them for years. Now I love me some jalapeños. I like poppers. I like the pickled sliced on nachos.

I like fine sliced jalapeno in a burger. Adds just the right 'snap', even if the seasoning is good.

Suva, Fiji, some time, maybe October 72? Pacific Hotel dining room. Guy at the next table eating a red chicken. Made my eyes water. That's exactly what I don't need to eat.

Growing up in the '50's mid west, my only exposure to peppers, of any kind, was stuffed bell peppers. As a kid, I was a picky eater & had they not contained ground beef, I would not have touched those things with a ten-foot pole!

So. Ca. was an awakening, to put it mildly. Even after forty years in So. Ca, I am far from an authority on peppers. But If someone were giving me fresh peppers from their garden, I'd eat them. Life is too short to eat boring food.

Water, beer & the like do absolutely nothing to tame the heat of peppers. Rice & sugar, even the fake sugar in the little packets, work. Kudos for the kid.

Cucumber, also shredded in yoghurt with mint (Tzatziki.) Bruschetta is second best.

Beware of manzano peppers.  They look rather innocent, but . . .

I am totally a hot pepper wimp. Even jalapenos are too hot for me. Watching Bobby Flay cook on TV, putting chilis and hot peppers in everything, makes me sweat.
