There is a hybrid of the jalepaño and the habanero pepper called the "jalebanero". I once at some jelly beans with some of that in them, and it took my breath away for a minute or two.Posted by: Doyle at March 13, 2009 1:16 PM

He needed a wad of sushi rice to munge on to remove some of those oils. Then you spit it out. You don't drink to flush, because coming out will be just as painful!
Problem with what he did - you can't clear your air passages because the more you breathe, the more the oil vapors pass into your lungs. I'm sure he heaved afterwards, and probably spent the night in the emergency room with oxygen.
We had to go through the gas-chamber in the military to get an appreciation for how nasty gas agents can be. Habanero peppers is what they concentrated to make the canisters. They also used the least powerful stuff.
No Thank You.

I make a fresh salsa with lots of habanero peppers, strawberry, honey and vinegar. I call is "Suckah Punch" because you taste the honey and strawberry first then the pepper hits.
The most potential life threaten situation for me was when my 7th degree black belt instructor decided to try it. I told her it was hot.
Some people think it could be hotter. Other start praying to God, as in "Oh My God That's Hot!!!" She was in the latter group.
Hah. I've eaten habanero peppers before and I didn't do that. I wonder how he would do with the new hot sauces I just bought.Posted by: Mike at March 14, 2009 3:58 AM
