But this stuff is %$('&%')&%ken nuts!!!
If you can find Bhut Jolokia and if you dare to consume a substantial portion then I would advise you to put a roll of toilet paper in your freezer ready for the next day as your bottom may get a little hot. Also having a bit of baby’s nappy rash cream to hand may be a good idea. But for all the warnings ...don't be scared, go ahead and give it a go. I think it’s absolutely tremendous.
But for heavens sake if ya touch it with yer fingers make damned sure ya wash well with hot soapy water or you'll be screamin after yer visit ta da toilet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Measure the Heat
The Scoville scale is named after its creator, American chemist Wilbur Scoville, who developed a test for rating the pungency of chili peppers. He devised this method in 1912.
The piquancy of a chili is defined by the amount of capsaicin it contains. Capsaicin is a chemical compound which stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in the skin, especially the mucous membranes. The number of Scoville heat units (SHU) indicates the amount of capsaicin present.
In Scoville's method, a solution of the pepper extract is diluted in sugar syrup until the "heat" is no longer detectable to a panel of (usually five) tasters; the degree of dilution gives its measure on the Scoville scale. Thus a sweet pepper or a bell pepper, containing no capsaicin at all, has a Scoville rating of zero, meaning no heat detectable, even undiluted. Conversely, the hottest chilis, such as habaneros, have a rating of 200,000 or more, indicating that their extract has to be diluted 200,000 times before the capsaicin presence is undetectable. The greatest weakness of the Scoville Organoleptic Test is its imprecision, because it relies on human subjectivity.
