"A prosecutor for the case said Banwell had been named in 43 theft-related offenses since 1989."

Clearly a criminal mastermind.

Who steals produce? Is there a large black market for produce?

I wouldn't be too harsh a man stealing because he was hungry and it is nice to see that he is avoiding the carbs, they'll just spike your blood sugar.

That's why you have to follow up with ice cream after spicy food.

I've eaten a dish (okay, one bite of a dish) made with those. It take a couple of minutes to really hit you, but when it does it's a full-body reaction. It was like 15 minutes before I could stop my legs from shaking.

They also found crack cocaine and heroin, which will likely have more serious consequences than the peppers.

Tell that to his arsehole.

I have two ghost pepper and two habanero varieties in my summer garden. One of the habanero peppers was hot enough where I only needed one pepper for a whole pot of chili using 2 lbs of meat. I am scared to even try the ghost chilis. Since this summer was so hot they are probably hotter than usual. I have so many peppers I do not know what to do with them, and they only just started bearing ripe peppers.

Can you be damaged by eating really, really hot peppers or hot sauce? I mean physically damaged, not emotionally damaged.

After my wife picked a batch and let them soak in the sink to wash them, she spent 30-60 minutes wading through the water to organize all of the peppers and other vegetables, and her hands started to burn. She said they burned for a few hours.

This guy's just lucky he had the clarinet in his pants and the pepper in his mouth instead of the other way around.

Also, Salsa Day 2012 is tomorrow. I'll be making some ghost salsa as well as some wimpier varieties. Must remember to get gloves before dicing habaneros or hotter.

If a Jalapeno rates only about 8,000, I cannot imagine what 350,000 would be like!

I grew a jalapeno plant one year. I sliced one open and ate a little slice. My mouth burned for 2 days!
I love them pickled, but never fresh!

WhippingBoy: Can you be damaged by eating really, really hot peppers or hot sauce? I mean physically damaged, not emotionally damaged.


it's possible. I've been to a crawfish boil that left my fingers raw for the rest of the day. inflamed red hands from the red pepper, had to soak them in milk... lost some layers of skin, i think. somehow my stomach was fine though. but, in the pepper's defense, i have some skin affliction on my hands that makes them susceptible to certain chemicals. not an allergy, but a weakness.

but, I've heard of people having problems from too much spice. the body reacts in significant ways. though, no permanent damage. nothing that lasted more than 24 hours.

I can't even handle a little bit of chipotle in a food-item without being up all night with a stomach-ache and vomiting. I don't want to imagine eating a raw Scotch Bonnet.

So where did he shoplift those from?

I don't know about physical damage, but the emotional collapse is very real. I once got drunk and bit into a habanero pepper on a dare. One side of my face completely shut down while the other was on fire. Flames licked my internal organs. I saw my ancestors. I saw god. Am pretty sure I had an erection, for some reason.

I haven't found a habanero I haven't liked. My sister places a match tip in with the plant seed when she plants them because that is supposed to increase the heat from the sulphur content. I don't know, but we cut some of them up and place them on a pan to bake for a few minutes in the oven. Add those to a party mix and it is awesomeness in flavor form.

I ate a half dozen chicken wings coated with 500k hot sauce for dinner last night. I had to sign a release to do it. I have very minor burns on my lips, tongue and a few of my fingertips to prove it. On the other hand, my name is being put on a metal plaque at the restaurant where I did it, so it was clearly worth it.

I grew jalapenos this summer as well and when I was out picking some earlier this month I accidentally rubbed my eye. That one eye leaked for about a solid 24 hours and I looked like I had been in a fight. It was the only time in my life I regretted making fun of eye wash stations in chemistry lab.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: .....After Vomiting Looted Vegetables
Peppers are fruit.


So are zucchini, tomatoes and others.

Fruit in that sense is a biology term, vegatable in this sense is a culinary term. Something can be biologically a fruit and gastromomically a vegitable at the same time.
