Ghost Pepper Chili Salt
- Ghost peppers can be eaten alone as a dare or can be enjoyed by those that like intense heat. Otherwise, these are usually used sparingly in dishes that benefit from a touch of heat or spice.
- Ghost pepper seeds are inedible and are known to produce intense mouth pain when eaten. The pain can last up to 30 minutes, so be careful!
- The Scoville rating for ghost peppers is as high as 1,000,000!
- 1 ½ cups whole ghost peppers (can substitute ½ cup ghost pepper purée)
- 1 ½ cups non-iodized salt
- Rinse peppers and remove stems and seeds.
- Place peppers in blender and blend until mixture is very fine.
- In a clean jar, mix peppers and salt. Shake.
- Over the next few days, shake once per day. This helps to distribute the salt.
