Fresh Ghost Chilies

Sayurijg | Sep 15, 2012 11:17 AM

I have been lovingly growing ghost chilies and they have finally ripened. They really are as hot as wikipedia says they are. I tried one (didn't even swallow) and spent the next 30 minutes seriously considering a trip to the ER. I am no chili-wuss but these are mind-blowing.

Now I have dried ghost chilies already so I don't need more, but I am wondering what on earth to do with the 12 or so that are almost ripe. Apart from make some sort of deadly assault weapon!

Any thoughts?
