Bhut Jolokia peppers from Assam, India. We have a large supply of "A" grade pods.
Being three times hotter than an Orange Habanero, our suggestion for cooking with these chillies is to use a small amount, very finely ground (dry or rehydrated and reduced to a paste). As a rough guide, try 1/4 of a pod per person for a hot dish.
Note - Extreme caution should be used when handling or eating this extremely hot chile pepper and its seeds. Always wash your hands thoroughly after handling.
