Chilebrown at home

Tuesday, September 9, 2008


It is time to move on. We have more peppers to harvest. Today is the Benhi Highlands pepper from Bolivia. We made a salsa with these beauties. They were not super hot. They were a little hotter than a Serrano. They had a very fruity taste like a Habanero, but with out the heat. They are a pale to bright yellow color. When you cut in to them they have white seeds. The smell has faint familiar habanero smell. They are a cousin from the Habanero (chinese) family. We liked these a lot. Sometimes you want the Habanero taste without the burn. These peppers suit this purpose.

There will be more pepper reviews to follow. I am looking forward to the Bhut Jolokia. It is five times hotter than the Habanero. We shall see. I am sending out an invite for all takers. Please join me in this monumental tasting event. I need somebody to hold my hand on the way to emergency.

Hotter than a habanero? Oooo. I'd be willing to partake. Because I'm crazy like that.
