Why are jalapenos hot?

Report as

Due to the capsaicin.......which you can buy in concentrated form in order to pull horrible pranks on people......

Try ghost chilis. I grew some last summer. I've never had anything that hot in my life.

Yeah. I think I found my line on hot with the ghost peppers. I ended up drying most if them out and putting them into a coffee grinder. I have it in a shaker that I put a dash of into things.

Way back when, I used to work at a place that sold produce.....the place was near a lot of farms that grew all sorts of different veggies.....well, one day we got a shipment of different stuff in from one of the locals.....one of the things we received was some Scotch-Bonnet Peppers.....you know how cute and innocent and orange they look.....well, I had never even heard of them before..... I asked the one dude that had been workin there for quite some time what kind of peppers they were.....he said "they're a cross between a sweet and hot pepper"......so I picked up a whole one, chewed it up, and swallowed......HUGE MISTAKE......my insides were hurting for hours on end.....I friggin wanted to K-I-L-L him......he was laughin his azz off at me all day after that....

They really aren't that hot. Not when you cook with habeneros.

John: It was.... Interesting. He wanted to sit and watch Caillou the whole time. I told him he couldn't sit in from of the TV all night so we ended up playing pirates. Apparantly that involves getting into his mom's eye makeup while I was making his pirate sandwhich.
*sigh*
How are you? :)

Did you use them to hurt someone as a cruel joke Buddah? Because I think it's impossible to consume such a thing.

It's an oil called capsaicin, which is that hot sensation when eating peppery food.
