Carolina Reaper Mash and Puree

In terms of peppers grown worldwide, the Carolina Reaper Pepper now holds the top spot for heat. The Carolina Reaper is regarded as the hottest pepper ever made and is still available on the market, with a Scoville scale (SHU) value above 2 million units. It has a heat level that ranges between 175 to 880 times greater than the average jalapeno pepper.

The Carolina pepper was developed by “Smokin” Ed Currie at his greenhouse in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and in 2017 it broke the record for the highest Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) heat output. A tiny pod, the Carolina Reaper averages 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.6 cm) long and 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) wide. The pods turn a vivid scarlet as they get older. The skin has a tendency to be bumpy, while other individuals may have smoother skin.

The Carolina Reaper is no joke even consumed in very small amounts and only used in sauces and food products that require extreme heat. The peppers can be used to flavor chicken wings, cooked meats, pasta, Asian noodle meals, chilies, stews, and soups when they are incorporated into sauces.
