Recently there was a question asked to a group of anonymous internet users, "what is the most pointless thing that people brag about?" One of the replies was: "eating hot things". Well eff that troll!
If you’re a hot sauce connoisseur, you already know that the habanero pepper is the go-to spice when you want your taste buds to feel the flavor. This pepper can mesh seamlessly with the flavor of a variety of ingredients, so it kicks butt on poultry, meat, veggies, fish, eggs, and even some desserts.
So maybe you love to feel the burn (that's why you're here, right?) But have you ever wondered what makes hot sauce "hot"? How capsaicin works is actually pretty f'ing cool... almost as f'ing cool as you'll be when you use your superior knowledge of science to overcome the most badass of hot peppers.
