    Copcar that was EVIL!!! I have tried hot sauces made from it, but never had the peper. I used to work for a chicken place call Zaxby's. Well, we were a franchise store and held off getting the insane wing sauce for a while when the corperate store had it for a while. Well, if anyone has heard of daves insanity souce thats what we used for the insane wings. Although Zaxby's dilutes it with the nuclear sauce because its just too dang hot straight. When we first got it the emplyees were allowed to try it before we started selling it. And being a 17 y/o hot shot I decided to eat a chicken finger dipped in the sauce. We were not diluting the sauce because we didn't know that we were suposed to be. I was running around the store eating bread, dumping sugar on my tongue, and trying everything to cool the FIRE! Daves insanity sauce is straight FIRE and can BURN YOU!! I have seen it in a catalauge of hot sauces before, and it was one of the ones in the catalauge that required you to fill out the waver in the back before they would sell it to you. These sauces are rediculously hot. More power to you guys that like hot stuff, but I have grown out of it. I used to drink tobasco growing up, but now I like a just a little zing. Nothing to the level of insanity sauce or a habanero pepper though.

    I have habanero sauce every morning in my tuna sandwich. And this is stuff my brother brought back from the land of Mexico itself.
    If one ever finds him/herself in dire need of quick relief after setting off napalm in their mouthes, I'd recommend brushing your teeth and (most importantly) tongue with toothpaste, rinse with plenty of water, then eat cold, mild yoghurt.
    Fun stuff, nonetheless!

    Cheers

    My habanero story is that I sometimes took habaneros to work to give away. One time someone cut one into strips and was getting people to try them. He went to a new guy who was watching and said he had to try it to show he's part of the team. So new guy took a whole pepper and bit off half. He probably did two chews before his eyes popped and he did the desperate dash for relief.

    So I went home at the end of the day and told my wife about it. She decided to show off by eating an entire habanero. Of course the same thing happened to her. She was pretty miserable the rest of the night. But the next day she was really sick and I couldn't understand why. She couldn't understand either and said she had even taken extra antacids to stop the burning. I asked how many and, if I remember correctly, the number was 18. She had taken a couple, still felt the heat and kept taking more through the evening. She definitely shouldn't be allowed anywhere near medication and that antacid overdose kept her sick for a couple days.

    The "cure", as much as there is one, for burnt tongue, mouth and innards is not sugar or ice water...its any kind of dairy product. Milk, sour cream, etc. That does the best job of taking the heat out of a hot pepper sting.

This works by the same principle that causes oil and water to separate.

    Instead, consuming foods high in fats and oils, such as milk or bread and butter, will help alleviate the burning. The lipophilic capsaicin is able to mix freely with the fats in the food and is removed from the surface of the mouth. Alcoholic beverages also dissolve capsaicin due to the solvent characteristics of ethanol. Of course, over time the capsaicin will dissipate on its own accord.
    Ahhhhhhh...feel the burn. I like habaneros, but I'm no fool. I have my limits with hot stuff and I have enough sense to eat just what tastes and feels good without having to overdo it to prove something.

    Ummm, Ummm good.

    This is a pic of the Habenero's I used to grow before I moved. Now our local Publix grocery carries them fresh and they are a staple in my diet, fresh sliced on sandwiches, made into salsa for chip dip and dried for chili, soups and roasts. You will not believe what they can do for corned beef and cabbage.

    I've always thought habaneros made great study for photographs. The color is awsome and then you have all the ripples and curves. Their beauty belies what lays beneath the surface....muuuuhahahahahahahha!

    OK...after all this, definitely Mexican food for lunch today. I feel the need for heat.

    Love 'em!

    I tried growing a whole bunch this year (did very well last year - the Hot Sauce Ozzy won in the auction is one of the products), but most of my plants didn't do too well.

    HOWEVER, I do have one Tazmanian habenero plant that is FINALLY flowering. I have it in a large pot so I can bring it in when it gets too cold - and I'll give it supplemental lighting in the winter to keep it fruiting.

    Maybe I can dig up a few more and pot 'em and do the same thing. They can be painfully slow.

    You can get seeds for all different varieties from Pepperjoe.com. This guy's selection rocks!
