Reviving the thread to drop this in.
I don't know what these peppers a neighbor gave my kids to bring home to me were, but I'm drying them for future use. That's not entirely true, I do
know there's a Thai chili, and a Hungarian pepper. There's 2 tiny brown ones that shriveled overnight before I had a chance to really get a good look
at them, and half a dozen habaneros. Or what I think are habs. Not so sure of that anymore.
I'll have to corner that neighbor one of these days and ask, catching her is hit & miss as it is with her work schedule. They look like habaneros, but
the one I diced up to put in my bowl of soup a while ago was a hell of a lot hotter than any habanero I've ever had before. I made it through the
bowl, but I was eating through a stream of involuntary tears, a nose faucet, a tingling, numb mouth and the threat of hiccups (never developed them,
but came close) I've never had that kind of heat reaction from a habanero, I eat them whole and raw for a snack.
I'm wondering if these are one of the super hot hab varieties, or a ghost pepper. The two are hard to tell apart if you're not completely familiar
with the visual differences between them. Whatever it was, it was good despite the heat. Almost a fruit-floral background.
