Very Hot Pepper’s Chutney


I recently managed to find ‘Ghost Pepper’ powder and was looking for an opportunity to use it. For most of us not familiar with ‘Ghost Pepper’, otherwise known as Bhut Jolokia, is the bad boy of the chili world, weighing on the Scoville scale to the amazing 1,041,427 SHU, about 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce and about 200 times hotter than a jalapeño pepper. It’s one of the hottest peppers in the world and a one-time Guinness Book of World Records champ.

Well, without further ado, here is my chutney with Ghost Pepper, among others, only for the brave!
