Tobasco Habanero comes to Canberra!

Tobasco Habanero

I was very excited to find this little bad boy in my supermarket earlier in the week.

And when I posted about it on Facebook I was a little surprised to discover quite a few jetsetters have been smuggling it into the country for some time in their suitcases such is the passion in inspires.

Having used it for a couple of days… wow! In love!

At 200,000 scovilles it needs 200 litres of sugar water to neutralise a single drop.

To put it another way consumed raw it can give your tongue chemical burns.

But a single drop mixed into soup? Or a salad oil?

That rich habenero flavour just rolls over everything.

If you’ve been waiting for a really hot hot sauce then finally there’s one readily available here in Canberra.

[Sadly I haven’t been paid anything at all for these words]

What’s Your opinion?

Just given it a test drive.
Very nice, but not super hot.
Not in the Death/insanity sauce league by any stretch of the imagination.
But still, a good splash on a baked tattie had me nicely warmed through.
Will try adding it to the weak stuff which passes for curry out here.
(Hint it’s not vindaloo unless it takes you to the verge of losing consciousness eating it.)

try for a big range of really hot sauces and some not so hot.

I’ve had the death sauce and it’s just to hot for me but the chipotle sauce, that’s a taste sensation

Have you not seen the Simpsons episode where Homer goes to the chilli cook off. He started hallucinating which is pretty close to the truth if you OD.

Sun goes up, sun goes down. 🙂
