Waiting for the roti to be prepared at a West Indian restaurant, I looked around and saw bottles on the counters.
Pepper sauce. All kinds of pepper sauce and combinations of pepper sauce in levels of hot, or spiciness.
I guess the pepper sauce is regular hot. Then there’s ‘seriously hot’. And then Rrrelll Hot. I found that funny. But I wasn’t trying it.
Charles says that he hasn’t found a pepper sauce yet that he couldn’t take, so I pointed these out to him, but he didn’t feel for pepper at that time. See that bottle at the end, the one with a triple ‘X’ on it? He said that he wasn’t even going to try that one to find out how hot it is. He didn’t trust any bottle with just a piece of paper stuck on the outside, and where you can’t see the liquid or the contents of the bottle.
Me? This is as near as I’m getting to these hot sauces … Not even going to try a micro-dot of it. Just looking at it makes my tongue burn already. I’ll leave that for you adventurous foodies out there.
What’s the hottest pepper sauce you’ve tried?
