The Bird's Eye Chili - One of the Hottest peppers in the world
In 1912, Professor Wilber L. Scoville, a renowned chemist, devised a scale
to measure the heat of peppers. The chemical that causes the burn in
peppers is called Capsaicin (cap-say-ah-sin). The Bird's Eye Chili can
measure between 100,000 and 250,000 on the Scoville scale, whereas the
standard Jalapeno pepper is at 500. This is a significantly spicy pepper
and only a handful of others are rated higher on the Scoville scale.
Each of these Bird's Eye Chilies are very small, but they are extremely
spicy. They originated in Southeast Asia and spread into Cambodia, Laos,
Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore.
Some suggest that the name originated from the manner in which the seeds
were originally spread. The birds would eat the seeds and spread them
over fields. It is important to note, though, that birds do not feel the
effects of the Capsaicin and were not affected by the spiciness.
It has been suggested that consumption of these peppers may lead to an
ease of hypertension, toothache, arthritis, and dyspepsia. Whether or
not these are effective medicines does not negate the amazing flavor
they can provide to any dish. The Bird's Eye Chili is great in Szechuan,
Keralan and Thai cuisines. They also make a powerful pot of American
Chili for any competition. The flavor of this pepper is truly unique and
you must try it.
Warning: When using this pepper in your
cooking, always notify your friends and family to refrain from touching
their eyes. If the oil of this pepper gets on the skin and any sensitive
facial tissue is touched, it can cause a very painful reaction.
