5 Ghost Pepper foods that appear so innocent.

The Bhut Jolokia — also known as Ghost Pepper has been around for many centuries and it is believed to have originated in Assam, India. The word Bhut, given from the Bhutias people, means “ghost” and was probably given the name because of the way the heat sneaks up on the one who eats it. It was only introduced to the western world in 2000. In that same year, a report was published stating it’s level of heat as almost double that of a Red Savina Habanero which was believed to be the world’s hottest pepper. In 2007 The Ghost Pepper was certified as the hottest Chili Pepper on the planet in The Guinness Book of World Records. Here are some foods for the brave… have a huge glass of milk standing by or friends to hold you up.

Devil Seeds Recipe, if you dare…

BeFunky_1.jpg

What to do with all those leftover pumpkins? Try this perfect spicy snack.

Serves about 4 people as a snack 

The seeds of 2 pumpkins
3 tablespoons of melted butter
2 teaspoons of chilli powder (spice it up to your liking.. we dare you)
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons of sea salt

Remove the seeds from the pumpkin, place in a colander and rinse with water until they are clean.

Shake off any excess water and place the seeds on a dry tea towel and pat dry.

Place the seeds in a large roasting tray and pour over the melted butter.

Sprinkle the seeds with the chilli powder, cayenne pepper and sea salt.

Toss the seeds until they are all thoroughly coated.

Place in the oven to toast for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool, though to be honest sometimes they taste the best straight out of the oven!  Just watch out for burned fingers!
