Sunny Gnaws a Naga

Food Network hostess Sunny Anderson tries a Naga chili.

The Naga (or Bhut Jolokia) is a chili designed my botanists in India to be even hotter than the Habenero, the hottest chili found in nature.  To give you an idea of the scope we are talking about the Jalapeño rates 2500-8000 Scoville units, the Serrano kicks a cool 10,000–23,000, the Tabasco checks in at 30,000–50,000 and the aforementioned Habenero rates 100,000–350,000.

The Naga has been engineered to have between 855,000 and 1,075,000.  That’s over 100 times hotter than the classic Jalapeño.  Watch as Sunny discovers this for herself.  Keep in mind that she is lover of Caribbean food and often cooks with Habenero and Scotch Bonnet.  If you are stupid enough to try this a word to the wise – nothing diffuses the heat better than dairy so have a gallon of whole milk at hand and spit – don’t swallow.
