My friend and colleague Jason went all out planting chile peppers this year. When he said this winter that he was going to plant Carolina Reapers, I told him that when they were ripe, I’d come down, pull the stem off one, chew it up, and swallow it.
Tonight was the night. This is one of the most commanding sensory experiences I’ve ever had. At its peak, this pepper inhabits your soul. You are completely incapable of thinking about anything else. It is one amazing ride.
Thanks for the experience, Jason!
