In dried form, Habaneros cost $18.99 a pound in any local Latin market. And being habaneros are rated at 100,000–350,000 on the Scoville Scale, my 38 cents worth (pictured above) does wonders for global warming. Even rubbing my eye while taking this photo can't deterred me from saying, "Hot stuff, can't get enough." As an example of my mania, I put dried habanero in a small pepper mill I carry while traveling. It's the only way of insuring a hot spot no matter where I roam...
I encourage you to drop into ethnic markets in your neighborhood. Find out what surprises they have in store for you there. Just imagine what 38 cents did for me.
