A New Bonnet

Scotch BonnetI am very proud of this picture, not the quality of the photograph but the fruit that it contains.  This is a ripe Scotch Bonnet and for those of you haven’t come across them, they are hot chilli peppers, used most notably in Caribbean cooking.  We have tried before, but this is first time we have successfully grown them.  These peppers mean business, they have a rating on the Scoville scale (on which such things are measured) of between 150,000 and 350,ooo, jalapeño peppers a mere 2,500 to 8,000.  This doesn’t mean they will tear the taste buds from your tongue, used in a restrained manner they add not only heat but a distinct and delicious flavour to your cooking.  Here endeth today’s message from the Scotch Bonnet Advertising Agency.
