“It’s about to get heated inside of my cheeks!”
Said the Cayenne, Serrano and Haberno freak,
“My tongue will dance, while Facing Heaven,
No Dragon’s Breath, but staunch Scoville ascension.”
“Scotch Bonnet, Bird’s Eye, and the venerable Ghost,
It’s hard to decide which one I love most,
The feverous flavours, the toilet you tether…
The gift and the curse of a spirited pepper.”
As I’ve previously confessed to you, I love spicy foods, so much so that hot pepper sauce is one of my all time guilty pleasures. I love trying various spicy seasonings and peppers that pack a punch, some of which are listed in this piece.
Although, I have not yet had the courage to experience even a brief tongue touch with the top 10 hottest, but I’ve experienced the thrill of reaching into the hundreds of thousands on the Scoville Scale, however the top 9 reach into the Million+ range! Scary right!?! (In comparison, Jalapeños come in at around the 10,000 mark).
So, do you share my love of the spicy? …or maybe you have a passion for something else that matches (or arguably surpasses) mine! If so, let me know! 😁
