#2 heat of peppers!

finally one I know! heat of peppers. We don't do too much heat, my husband loves it but starts sweating immediately!

the chiles -- love your choices!
I keep adding more -- latest is Kashmiri.

The Scoville Scale measures the heat from peppers...and yes I do have bottles of Tabasco in my fridge...the green jalapeno and the original. I'll put sriracha and tabasco on anything. The hotter the happier *Ü*

#2. We like spicy, so I have a few fiery staples.

Scoville scale measures the heat of peppers - and that's the top of a Tabasco bottle.

#2, no I dont in the process of updating spice cabinet :(

2 heat of peppers
Currently none in my pantry.

Peppers--finally I knew one!

And yes, ever since my spouse's first trip to Iraq we've had at least 1 bottle of Tabasco on the table/in the pantry.

Thanks, Lydia!

#2 - The heat of peppers. It seems as if we keep discovering hotter and hotter peppers - e.g., the "ghost pepper." Are they breeding them hotter, or discovering them, do you know?

#2! Love little food q's like this. :)

Measures the heat of peppers, and I currently have five different bottles of hot sauce in my fridge.

Peppers. Always have them on hand. Serrano and Jalapeno especially.

The heat of peppers -- and I have a variety of pepper related sauces in my pantry and some homemade sriracha in the refrigerator!

The heat of peppers but I had to laugh at #5 as that is made in the city live in!
