Chile, Habanero, Whole

Native to the Caribbean, the northern coast of South America and the Yucatan, these chiles are from the same family of peppers as the Scotch Bonnets and Jamaican hot peppers. Habaneros are one of the hottest varieties of peppers known to man, measuring a whopping 175,000 to 300,000 Scoville units. That’s a 10 on a heat scale of 1 to 10.

The best relief for a burning mouth isn’t water; it’s a mild yogurt or sour cream.

Underneath its superior heat level is a papaya and berry-like flavor. We carry these orange-red chiles in both whole and ground. Whenever cooking with this chile, be sure to wash all utensils and your hands after use. Habaneros add great flavor to chili, salsa, tortilla soup, chutneys and barbeque sauces. Use sparingly on chicken, fish or to make spicy hot jerky.

“Glad I found you! My husband & I wrote an award-winning cookbook called "A Drizzle of Honey: The Lives and Recipes of Spain's Secret Jews". The recreation of these recipes requires herbs and spices that are not easily found in the USA. Thank goodness for Savory Spice Shop!”
