Recently I was at the supermarket, getting some shrimp at the fish counter. The clerk noticed I had some habanero peppers, and he asked if I’d checked out the ghost peppers. My interest was piqued, but I had no idea what he was talking about. He told me to look at again.
They were Frieda’s ghost pepper chilis. My first question: are these really ghost peppers? Comparing to the standard orange habaneros you’d get at the supermarket I’d stay these peppers were about three times as spicy. So probably real ghost peppers then. But here’s the great thing: there was a tangy astringency which made them much less bland that mass produced orange habaneros. The pepper was legitimately delicious.
The main caution I’d give is that what goes in easily may not come out with grace and comfort.
