Carolina Reaper pepper review by Ragnar Snedeker

Today’s review is going to be of the Carolina Reaper. I got a pepper plant from somebody I know personally and the peppers have been quite prolific in terms of growth. Pizza, omelets chili, hot pasta, soups, steak, ribs and chicken would be very good uses for it. Perhaps it could be used in a pepper eating contest, however, it would be advisable to eat a pod with a good amount of food beforehand. Definitely a pepper for a chili head to consume. This is perfect if used in a hot sauce or pepper flakes and powder. My pepper plant has been very fruitful and I am looking forward to making more use out of it. Something I have heard is that milk would only give people relief as long as the milk was in one’s mouth after eating a hot pepper but the heat would just go back up after the milk is swallowed. Personally, I rarely use dairy products to deal with the spice nowadays. I go for the water and just let the heat keep escalating. After the heat has peaked, I let it deal with itself, regardless of how long it takes.

    Fruit works well for calming the effect…..I grow a Lao pepper….excellent for Thai style food and great on grilled fruit. Have a good day….be well…..chuq

      Lobotero, I am kind of finicky in that regard. Sometimes I like to escalate the spice and sometimes I like to let its burn wear off by itself.

              The Carolina Reaper tastes good. A piece of advice: Don’t ever consume one of those on an empty stomach. My tolerance to spice is really high, however, the Carolina Reaper has a good spice level to it.
