Bhut Jolokia Peach Chili Flakes
The peach coloured Bhut Jolokia chili ripens to a soft peach tone, but lacks nothing compared to the fiery spiciness of its red sister.
The Bhut Jolokia (Bih Jolokia) variety was the spiciest chili in the world from 2007-2011, until it was outstripped by newer, hotter varieties. It originates from the region of Assam in India and has been cultivated and used there for many years. Investigations by the Chile Pepper Institute in 2005 gave it a value of 1.001.304 SHU, making the Bhut Jolokia the first chili variety to exceed the magic One Million mark.
The Bhut Jolokia Peach Peach chili flakes are extremely spicy, have the typical flavour of the Bhut Jolokia variety, but with a slightly fruity undertone which reminds some of peaches. They are suitable for spicing up Asian dishes, in particular Indian curries, meat and fish dishes. The fruity note also harmonises well with African and Caribbean cuisine.
We have our Bhut Jolokia Peach chillies cultivated by a contract farmer, so we have influence on the whole production process, in particular the quality. The freshly harvested chillies are gently dried and then ground. In this way, the flavours are almost completely retained.
Shelf Life / StorageStore in a cool, dry, dark and airtight place.
How to use
The advantage of chili flakes is that they can be dosed well and strewed over the food. As the spicy heat is relatively strong bonded in flakes, only moderately heat can be tasted when eaten pure. Chili flakes develop their full heat in the stomach. However, if you use the same chili flakes during cooking, the capsaicin dissolves and becomes fully bonded with the rest of the food.
Warning regarding spiciness
Caution: Use cautiously! Have an extinguishing agent ready (e.g. Mascarpone on toast, yogurt, milk, rice pudding, etc.) and take the usual protective precautions (don’t leave it in the reach of children, don’t get it on your hands, in your eyes or on any other sensitive body parts!).
