Whole Dried Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. Chillies
The Trinidad Scorpion Butch Taylor comes from an Australian Farm and entered the Guinness Book of Records in 2011 as the "Hottest Chili in the World". It was found to have an average of 1,463,700 SHU, after it has been overtaken by the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga (2 million Scoville) and in 2013 by the Carolina Reaper (2.2 million Scoville). Both of these extreme chili varieties are also in our product range, as seeds, plants, powder and flakes.
The Trinidad Scorpion Red Butch T is similar to an extremely hot habanero and can clearly be recognised by the spike on the chili`s pointed end. In addition to its extreme heat, it is full of flavour with a fruity, citrusy taste. This works very well with all types of food that have a very subtle taste, such as fish, white meat and sweet dishes.
Soak the whole dried chillies in hot water for 10 minuntes to rehydrate, then dice or puree and add to a recipe, or add directly to recipe that will cook at least 10 minutes.
