Those pods look amazing! Your recipe is borderline kimchi, toss in a little fish sauce and you're there.

When those chips first came out they were insanely spicy. I think they've come down since then.

#1553624 Will red gazing ball make peppas hotter?

Posted by Gorizza on 17 May 2018 - 12:12 AM

Pepperdaemon,

 

I don't know if you can add heat with sex or lesbians, but I do know a thing or two about gazing balls.

 

Back in the 80s I spent 4 trimesters studying under the great VENINI Via Montenapoleone at the Fondazione Bevilacqua la Masa and we exclusively blew gazing balls for increased capsaicin production. As a young scientist I devised an experiment where Venini and I would blow some balls with our hot lust and others we would blow in a traditional style. We cast our balls through the countryside to gardens and fields throughout Sicily, and I returned at harvest time to take readings. Of course, our magic hot blown balls gave the pickled peppers particularly poignant pungency.

 

 

Good growing with your gazing glass garden,

gorizza




#1552643 Why is this variety doing this?

Chocolate reaper and chocolate bhutlah are redundant IMO. I would swap out chocolate reaper for something. 




#1545721 In The News: Chili grower defends world's hottest pepper after man who at...

Posted by Gorizza on 15 April 2018 - 07:07 PM

Interesting. So I am curious..... I've never eaten a reaper as I don't like the flavors of most super-hots. But I've eaten T-Scorps and such. Never had intense pain for "an hour or two" following eating one. Anyone here eaten a reaper and had intense pain for "an hour or two"

 

Unless you prepare your stomach, you can get some pretty awful pain right in the stomach for a few hours.

 

Then again in about 12 hours or so. but thats a different story...

Glad to see it's been studied further. I wonder what specifically in the plant is reacting, looks like it effects some plants more than others

 

It is really strange. I'm still ready to say the experiment was flawed, but its difficult to say how without just trying to repeat it myself with temperature and humidity recorders.

 

One interesting thing is that the journal has an impact factor of 0.76, which is about the lowest I have ever seen.




#1539310 Recipe for Hot Cheeto Powder?

Posted by Gorizza on 21 March 2018 - 06:56 PM

I was wondering if anyone could share a recipe for how to make a hot cheeto powder that tastes anything like the real thing. I found this WIRED article, but it still leaves out a lot on the "Natural Flavors."

 

https://www.wired.co...in-hot-cheetos/

 

What do you think? is hot cheeto powder just cornmeal, maltodextrin, MSG, pepper extract, and citric acid?

That study is painfully flawed.

"Six trays containing the seeds of a garden cress herb were placed in a room without a WiFi router, and six trays were placed in a different room and next to two WiFi routers which, according to the girls' calculations,emitted about the same type of radiation as an ordinary cellphone, reports DR."

Did these rooms have the same sun exposure? Artificial light exposure? Temperature? Were the rooms adjacent? Were the wifi routers transmitting 2.4ghz band? 5ghz band? What's the transmit power set to? Are the electronics in the router properly shielded? Is there RF interference nearby?

If it was 2.4 and the rooms were adjacent they're getting blasted with RF, same with 5 but not as bad.

I especially enjoyed the "emitted about the same type of radiation as an ordinary cellphone". What "type" of radiation? EM, RF, or actual radiation? I'm assuming they mean RF, and if they do then yes same "type" but you've got higher EM coming off that router, and if one piece of electronic isn't shielded properly then it's not functioning properly and even more different.

I welcome further research on this, and maybe there is an effect, but this study is too flawed to draw any conclusions.

Sorry, I'm off my soap box.

Try switching your seedlings to the 5ghz band next time, it's less prone to interference :P

 

Ethansm,

 

Unfortunately, the high school experiment was replicated by a lab at Trent University, with even stranger results. Give this one a whirl, I am still quite skeptical, but at least they answer all of your questions.

I joined the forum almost a year ago and really love this place. I wanted to post to "Welcome" again because I just moved to the SF Bay Area a month or two ago and was wondering if we've got any members around here. I'd love to swap some seeds/seedlings before we germinate for the year (Ive got some neat stuff that you've just gotta try). Also, the seasons are pretty strange here, so if anybody has tips for gardening in the Bay I'd love to hear them.

 

Cheers everybody
