Evil Chilli Madness



Food always seems to be a big topic on blogs like this so i thought you might like a 'taste' of some fresh home grown produce...the evil Dorset Naga chilli.

Some smart idiot decided that chilli's just weren't hot enough, Scotch bonnets and Habernos for pussies...that kind of thing...So retreating to his greenhouse in deepest Dorset he decided to breed something with a bit more punch..some plant selection later the Dorset Naga was born...

The main selection comes from some plants found growing only in Bangladesh. Named the Bhut Jolokia or 'Ghost chilli' this puppy truly is the Wu Tang Clan of the Chilli world.

Capsaicin is the active ingredient in Chilli's giving them the hotness when eaten or rubbed on sensitive parts of the body...the heat given off is measured on the Scoville chart...right, with me so far? Those little green peppers you get on pizzas called Jalapenos give off a bit of heat if fresh? Bit of a tang on the palette? They measure approximately 2500 - 8000 on the Scoville scale. OK? Bear that in mind when you read that these Dorset Naga's have been rated at 960,000 Scovilles by two independent US Based Laboratories in 2006...On testing a batch grown and shown on the BBC's Gardeners World programme heat levels were tested by Warwick HRI, the Dorset Naga came in at almost 1.6 million. Even given a wide margin of leeway each way the result must surely be well over the million Scoville rating making these chillis probably the hottest in the world.

These pictured are my own stash, home grown in the greenhouse and believe me they are hot..Beyond Hot...at both ends say no more! They smell super sweet when cut lulling you into a false sense of safety..excellent joke material for that mate who always asks for the hottest curry at the take away and then bullshits on how hot he can take it...These beauties will rip him a new hole no problem at all..
