Profile: Dried ghost pepper is one of the world's hottest peppers and is used to commit Scoville suicide.
Does a ghost pepper even taste? Maybe, but the bright nova-level heat generally obscures it. In modest doses, it adds a fascinating tingling to chiles, marmalades, and milk-based foods and sweets.
Wear gloves when handling dried ghost peppers or ghost pepper powder. Hand washing is advised afterwards. Treat ghost pepper like excellent wine: a little is fine, but too much will leave you suffering.
