Does the hottest chile pepper in the world have a flavor? Perhaps, but usually it’s the blinding nova-level heat that distracts people from noticing it. However, in small doses it offers a very intriguing tingle that mixes beautifully in chili recipes, marmalades, and milk-based dishes and desserts. This chile powder is also a wonderful gift for those who truly pride themselves as masters of spicy food.
You should always wear gloves when using ghost chile products. Thorough hand washing afterwards is encouraged. Remember that just a pinch – literally, a pinch – is usually more than enough for any dish. Treat ground ghost chile the way you would good wine: a little is just fine, while a lot will leave you suffering.
