for those wondering what the habanero savina reference is about (is anyone actually wondering?), when i went to buy my monthly tofu supply at the asian food store i saw a bad of *unlabeled*
baby mini wrinkled red+orange pepper looking things.
Then yesterday i minced up some miscelaneous hot and sweet peppers and added them to my pot. i took a little nibble of each one, some were hot. then i remembered the little wrinkled mini red+organge guys in the unlabeled bag. i took out a few, washed and minced them, added them to pot, took a nibble of one piece. then my lips and mouth started to go on fire and i rushed to the refrigerator looking for milk and yoghurt, etc. it was extremely painful. thats when i got on the web and idenified my enemy and learned about savina habanero
Actually by far the worst thing was not the pain in my mouth, it was the intense burning in my hands
that has lasted almost 24 hours. Crazy!
