Habanero peppers are wrong, wrong, wrong!

    I was enjoying a lovely Labor Day get-together and barbecue with family and friends today when my peaceful bliss was shattered by an innocent looking enough small red vegetable.

    "Kenny" was making his famous home-made onion rings when he asked me if I would like to try a battered and deep-fried Habanero pepper.

    Since I like anything as long as it is battered and deep-fried, I gave it a shot.

    I grapped a good-sized chunk of pepper, about 2" long and 1/2" in diameter, and popped it into my mouth. I chewed it up, noted the interesting and citrus-like flavor, swallowed, and then about died.

    Holy cow!! ;6 ;6 ;6 I have never had anything so painful in my mouth since having my wisdom-teeth removed!

    I had to drink 3-glasses of milk before my eyes would stop watering. I usually like spicy food, but these home-grown peppers were beyond a food item, and went straight to chemical warfare;P .

    I don't get it, why would anyone want to subject themselves to chemical burns of the mouth????

    Needless to say, I will no longer be eating habanero peppers again!;g

    Who else has tried these "Seeds of Satan"??

    Habanero peppers rock!! In moderation of course.

    I mean seriously... it's the hottest pepper on the planet... what exactly did you expect?

    Well, someone informing me that, "it's the hottest pepper on the planet". That would have been a nice little bit of info before popping one into my mouth;).

    Well than maybe I should be invited to your next barbecue so I can follow you around and make sure you don't hurt yourself. For this I require an all-you-can-eat type arrangment. :)

    If it was immediately following the "pepper episode" than no. It was a good idea to transfer as much pain as possible away from your mouth. ;a

    well, since habaneros are the hottest peppers on earth, topping the SHU scale at 300,000, that would all make sense :)

    of course, the 'scale' has been betrayed by pepper spray companies who sell even hotter stuff...

    anyways, there are some habaneros that must be handled with gloves, otherwise they will burn your skin from even brief contact(the oils stick around, imagine that!)

    You had probably better eat a bunch if ice cream. Maybe that will cool things off on the way out.....

    ;P ;P whoa Vart!!! Better hope you are constipated for the next few days because I hear pray-tell that they burn just as bad on the other end.......

    Some guy named "Poopie the Gerbil" over on the other board was talking about how a friend took him out, got him drunk and he was scarfing those peppers down and now his backside was burning so bad........

    Will we get a report from you too??? ;f

    I have a few friends that can scarf down jalepenos like no tomorrow, but a habernero will even take them back, and they don't eat them.....they are just tooooo hot.

    I read somewhere that they are like 1,000 times hotter than a jalepeno. Noooooooooooooooo thanks!!! ;P

    My wife stopped at a road side stand selling fruit, asking for some hot peppers for a chili cook off. I knew it was a bad boy when he handed her ONE pepper and a pair of latex gloves.;6

    Always eat ice cream after eating those peppers. Then, when you're on the pot you can say, "C'Mon ICE CREAM!"

    I thought Scotch Bonnet peppers were hotter than Habanero peppers...
