Product Description

 

The Mountain Valley Hot Pepper Pack was developed by our staff to take adventurous gardeners from the milder end of the hot pepper family to the mother of all hot peppers, the infamous Ghost pepper.

This tour of 10 hot peppers includes approximately 25 seeds of each of all the varieties but the Ghost pepper, which contains about 10 seeds. Trust us when we say, you don’t need too many Ghost peppers, just ask Jerry B. and Royce – they cried for an hour after this year’s taste test.

The range of peppers will give you the ability to grill, stuff and make salsa fit for everyone from your Chili Heads to your more timid eaters and if you are anything like Bee, who packaged these peppers for you, you will find a way to sneak them into everything you make.

A little bit about heat and Scoville units (warning: nerd alert)

Scoville units measure the amount of dilution needed to overcome the Capsaicin in a pepper. Capsaicin reacts with nerve receptors which send a pain, or burning, sensation to the brain. Obviously, the more capsaicin, the more receptors, the more pain, however, the more pain the more endorphins your body will release to counter the pain. A true natural high, and possibly the reason Bee keeps sneaking hot peppers into everything.

A word of caution, some of these suckers are CRAZY hot. Most of us, well the brave (or stupid), tried the Ghost this summer. It’s called the ghost for a good reason; it burns and keeps burning like a ghost haunting you. Capsaicinoids are soluble in fats and oils, but not water, so have a glass of whole milk ready when tasting these mothers or you might be sorry!
