When You're Hot....
May 18th, 2019 at 7:03pm
 
† † I like a little heat in my food.† I've eaten and enjoyed some pretty hot things. At my local Thai restaurant I order the hottest things on the menu. As many of you know I was stationed in Seoul, Korea in the mid seventies.† Koreans like their food VERY spicy.† I loved the real Korean kimchee.† Not the kind they serve to Americans, but the stuff they eat themselves.† It was so hot that (pardon my being explicit) it would make me bleed coming out the other end the next day.† I ate it anyway. It was just so good.† Eating foods that hot actually give you a sort of high.† You sweat, turn beet red, your eyes water, your nose gets full, but it's great.
† †I like some heat but I have my limits. Masiakasauras would probably enjoy eating burning hot coals but anything hotter than a Thai Chili or Habanero is useless to me.† I like a happy burn, not an evil one.† You'll never catch me doing the Carolina Reaper or Ghost Pepper Challenge.†
† † The hottest thing I ever tried to eat was some home made hot mustard a buddy of mine had.† It was inedible.† It got as far as the back of my throat and my body rejected it.† I seriously think that if it had made it down there would have been serious, permanent† damage.
† † So what's the hottest thing you ever ate and what are some hot foods you enjoy?

Pizza....

Well, more specifically microwaved pizza that you don't check the temperature of. I've managed to pull all the skin off the roof of my mouth in one go after it blistered up from eating too hot pizza. And the worst part is I've done that twice now.

Never had something so hot I haven't been able to eat it, but although I like hot spicy food I don't go out of my way to eat extreme chilli's or anything like that.
We have over here a beef jerky called "Roadkill's Bloody Hot Ring Burner", sounds like something you would like.

We were gifted a small pot of piri piri sauce by my girlfriend's parents after their trip to Portugal. It says "hot" on it but what they meant was "nuclear". I like a fair amount of spice but CANNOT have more than a drop of this stuff. Even the tinest amount of it can be felt in a full sauce that could feed 4 people. I thought the little pot would last a year. I now think I'm going to still be adding it stuff in 2030.

I love hot sauces, mainly habanero/scotch bonnet types. I usually have at least 2-3 open in the fridge at any one point and put them on everything.

I never take it to a really painful place though, there's just a point beyond which there's no enjoyment from it.

I can't remember exactly what the hottest thing I ate ever was. Some stuff I've had with high concentrations of ghost chilli has been extremely hot (wings, pork scratchings, a pizza). I've also tried a few 'extract' sauces which are very hot but taste terrible.

Taste is definitely important. If it's just heat for heats sake it's of no interest to me. It's got to be enjoyable.

our next door neighbours are hindus and even the stuff they swear doesn't have chilli in - has chilli in !

Toral gave me some lentil dish a while back, said it didn't have chilli in.
So like an idiot I believed her, ate a few spoons before the heat kicked in - managed about half the small bowl before my taste buds shut down.

It was full of little red bits of chilli.

So I mentioned this and her reply was: 'that's dried chilli from the mixed spice - that doesn't count. Thought you meant fresh chillis.'

The thing about indian food is that they use really great spice blends, the flavours are fantastic. And then they go and hide all those flavours under the kind of chilli layer that would make a mexican's eyes water !

Smiley

I have a packet of ghost chilli powder, it's been unopened for about 5 years. I know if I opened it I'd be stupid enough to taste it on my finger, and I know I'd really really regret it. So I don't open it lol

Might take it to mallorca next year and pete and the guam guys can have a macho chilli off !

Hell I reckon once we get a few beers in the Austrians, they'd be daft enough to join in to whistle

Exactly. Heat for heat's sake doesn't interest me. It has to make sense with the dish. That's what I like about Thai Chilis. They're very hot but also flavorful.

    Serrano Peppers are really good.  I've been using them a lot lately.  They're not killer hot but they're hot enough to get your attention... a happy burn.

† † My favorite hot pepper is the Cherry Pepper. It's moderately hot like a Jalapeno. What sets it apart is its sweet, wonderful flavor. It's great for cooking and makes the best poppers.

Thai birds-eye peppers. No... Hatch green chile. Or maybe a bacon-wrapped stuffed poblano. OK. Donít make me choose!
Also, I once also had a really interesting spicy fresh cucumber in Eastern Europe. It looked and tasted like a cucumber but it had a spicy kick like a mild jalapeŮo.  Iíve never seen anything like it since, but it was really good!

I love hot. And yes the chili high is very real. I've had times when I swear it felt like I had taken an opiate, it's that strong. But Carolina reapers and ghost peppers are just too much to eat straight. If I make homemade salsa it has to have 15-20 habaneros in it but those people who put the reapers in are just crazy as far as I'm concerned.

My favorite peppers are chipoltes. They are perfect tasting, although I wish they had more heat.
