"Jamaica Hot Pepper." Just. Don't.
And the spawn of Satan erupted from his womb, born again.
I just touched this hot pepper to my tounge to taste-test it. I usually just pop some in my mouth and chew. THANK GOODNESS I DIDN’T DO THAT.
The gods must have been on my side tonight.
THIS IS THE HOTTEST HOT PEPPER I HAVE EVER TASTED. It welted my lip (literally, my lip started to welt) where my tounge touched my lip, and is still burning my tounge, and it got on my hands (I didn’t wear gloves while cutting it, I usually don’t, even with jalapenos, because they never seem that hot to me) so that I keep burning myself even though I have washed my hands like six times. No gloves, no glory.
My local Asian market is to blame. I got about 24 of these devil peppers for $2.42. Coincidence? I think not. I wouldn’t wish these on my worst enemy.
Any locals want to take 23 of the hottest hot peppers on the earth off my hands? The 24th one went into the trash. Yes, the trash and not the compost. It was so hot I thought it might kill the microbes and any life in my compost. Seriously. And you guys probably know I love hot peppers, hot sauce, etc. But not this devil.
