    Top 10 Hottest Chili Peppers in the World

    Primal Fuel
    If you thought habaneros were the hottest, think again.

    Marcel and his team use the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T as a basis for a hot sauce, and say that to cook it requires full chemical masks and protection suits.

    I don't even think those peppers can be considered food anymore.

    I recently made some hot sauce combining the 4 bhut jolokia and 4 7pot peppers. Let me just say it is not for the weak at heart, has a great flavor but this stuff is hot! I love it on eggs, chicken or anything pork.

    Fermenting red savina habaneros to make my own sriracha sauce! Who knows what kinda crap is in the stuff at the asian market. Only 5 ingredients, peppers, garlic, salt, coconut palm sugar and whey

    How high on the scoville scale do you have to get before eating a pepper counts as a credible suicide attempt?

    @kitoi: Is there any secret to fermenting hot peppers? The only fermented foodstuff I've made is kimchi. Is the process the same (add some salt+water, let sit at room temp for few days)? Thanks!

    The scorpion chilis are hot. Ate a bowl of them with pasta covered in ghost chili sauce a couple weeks back at hell night. That was a rough week. I would not suggest anyone do that, ever. The first bite actually cause my sight to dim and get a little starry as it felt like every pain receptor in my mouth fired off at once.

    My skin got immediately clammy, cold, and my fingers became trembly. Once I choked it down it felt like Pele herself was playing 1v1 against Pele the footballer. I started drooling uncontrollably and the pain... it hurts less to get pepper sprayed.

    Never going to do it again, but I suggest everyone give it a shot once.

    It's the same. Mine has been fermenting for 6days so far, the flavor has changed, smoother but still just as efin hot!
