There is a lot of talk out there about the heat level of a pepper…this month CaJohns is focusing on the flavor level.
CaJohns not only looks for the hottest peppers but we create some flavorful concoctions with the peppers. Whether in a barbecue sauce, hot sauce, spice blend or mustard –it is more than heat–we bring the flavor. So, since it is the spookiest month of the year–lets talk: Ghost.
The Bhut Jolokia ghost peppers origins can be traced back to India–if you order a curry-hot you’ll probably taste the jolokia peppers. For years the Bhut Jolokia dominated the scoville charts with about a 1 million rating. You’ll find the Bhut in many of sauces like our standards: Jolokia 10 and the Holy Jolokia as well as some up and coming sauces: El Chupacabra, Scorch and Calavera.
I encourage you to revisit this pepper–not only for its heat level but the flavor…it isn’t overpowering but subtle.
