What kind of nerd binge watches anime and decides to stay up all night slow roasting fruit? I mean, it made sense six and a half hours ago when I started but now I feel like a madman.

Tried out DaQatz' chilli candying recipe. Maybe not the best thing to do with excess Bhuts.

Tried a dried Moruga Scorpion x Jigsaw yesterday. Confused as to why you'd cross a half Moruga with a Moruga but it was the hottest pepper I've ever had.

    It's not too disimilar to harissa paste but has nuts, pomegranate and slightly different spices. At least, judging by the one from my new local turkish store. Good stuff.

Which is simpler, dealing with import legislation or just sewing seed pouches into my clothes and booking a flight? I swear the government overcomplicates everything.

    Or you can swallow seeds whole and dig them out of the toilet bowl...

    Given that science's best guess on the reason for capsaicin evolution is that pepper seeds can't survive mammalian digestive systems, I'm going to have to veto that one.

    Looks dangerous. You should probably mail it to me for proper disposal. :D

    What's happening to the world? While they waste time taking our harmless seeds, they are letting worse things under their noses!

    As long as they don't let those killer bees in I guess they're doing something worthwhile but I'm certainly not a fan.

Been fooling around with cinnamon extract and came up with a delicious crumble recipe. I won't post it here because it's not chilli but you can certainly have the link: https://spicefreakblog.wordpress.com/2017/02/28/stunningly-cinnamon

    If your beverages aren't spicy then you're not trying hard enough! Consider that a hint at a future recipe ;).
