Murder on the Capsaicin Express

RE: Murder on the Capsaicin Express
Chili and chocolate cake. Around my house you start eating that way somebody is pregnant!

Couple years ago, I bought some habanero plants and put them in my garden, and planted them as far away from anything else as I could. One plant I let the peppers turn red, figuring the redder the pepper the hotter they would be. Being in a family that does not like hot food, my thought was to put them in the food dryer and make a habanero powder that I could put on my chili so it would be a bit spicy.

After letting the harvest dry I got an old coffee bean grinder, put the peppers in there to grind.Not realizing that grinders of this sort are not....airtight?, I began grinding the peppers into a powder. Only some of the powder was flying out of the grinder and into my face, and befroe I realized it I was being peppersprayed by my own hand. And there is simply no manly way out of that situation that does not involv sobbing crying screaming kicking eyes running eardrums on fire etc etc.

But - I did manage to get the peppers ground up, and the result was a wonderful, yet rather potent, powder that I used on omlettes, chili, and tacos! Now I go buy the peppers, and use a wet towel for grinding. Keeps the powder from flying in my face.

Primary Principle - "It must NEVER be my fault"
