The Test: Carolina Reaper

4 August 2015 in Chilijournal

The first Carolina Reaper chili was ready today. Compared to other red chilis they look more orangish and quite poisonous if you ask me. Ah well, no pain no gain. So I made a traditional chili con carne and spiced it up quite a bit with a finely chopped chili. The conclusion: they burn as hot as they look! I'd say the stories you've read elsewhere are definitely true. This is a weaponized chili pepper. If you enjoy pain or like to see others gasp for air while they try to eat your evil cuisine, give this one a try. :)
