    I'm currently obsessed with hot sauce and will probably make a dupe of Taco Bell's fire sauce. (And I have a jar of powdered smoked ghost peppers in my purse to add to bland food.)

    I am also growing some ghost peppers (little sprouts) indoors. They are flourishing well, and I will probably end up taking them outside once they sprout more leaves...

    What are some hot sauces that you like?

    I thought we were going to discuss one of the other types of fire eating.

    Anyway yeah I like spicy things, much prefer them to have a bit of taste with it rather than burn -- it is entirely possible to have great taste before the burn kicks in which some people seem to not appreciate. Not a great fan of smoky things or vinegar either, which is something a lot of sauces seem to go in for but that is OK as there are others. I have grown chillies before, they were nice little things and made a good chutney in the end. For the amount I use and the cost of them I still find it easier to buy them in the supermarket though. Maybe if I went in further and grew more it would be doable -- for the amount grown then they do not need that much space compared to trying to grow enough potatoes or cucumbers to be worth the effort.

    Best one I can find with any kind of regularity.
    Vicious Viper. Tastes great, burns both ends. Exactly what I want in a hot sauce.

    I have one called God is Dead, it is not as nice as vicious viper but I can get that more easily in the real world.

    You can often find nice ones but after I have run out of it I tend to have a hard time finding more when I run out.

    If you want something to replace some tomatoes in a recipe* then I quite like sambal olek, I think originally it was an Indonesian thing but the Dutch use it a lot as well (it is certainly where I learned it from).

    *I would do the lot and also as I do not like tomatoes and they do not like me I tend to mix that with some blended bell peppers. Makes very nice pizza and unlike garlic pizza then people are content to be around me the next day.

    EOF so song(s)

    I am completely the same way. Most sauces use vinegar as a base and I find that highly annoying. I will definitely drop by my local supermarket to pick up the ingredients to dupe Taco Bell's Fire sauce - as I am completely addicted to the stuff.

    I'm growing them my first year, and I dunno. They seem to require a ton of effort and a lot more "ingredients' than just sunshine and stuff (heavy feeders, I guess). I've been feeding them with seaweed and a lot of calcium, and they seem to like it - they threw off a couple of blooms...

    You can get crazy with the greenhouses and plant food but my ones sat in their pot on the deck (fairly normal compost), were watered if it had not rained and that was the extent of that. That said I am not sure what the nagas you were growing might take.

    Someone say Ghost Peppers. I have those but in the way you put pepper flakes on pizza.

    Buffalo Chicken Pizza + Ghost pepper shavings or whatever they are = :tpi::tpi::tpi::tpi::tpi:
