FAQs about ghost peppers

Organic ghost peppers are grown without the chemicals farmers use to protect standard ghost pepper crops. Hot peppers like ghost peppers can be grown with a few chemicals that farmers can't use on other crops, such as acephate, chlorpyrifos, and oxamyl. If you're concerned about the impact of these chemicals, many experts feel it's worth choosing organic ghost peppers. However, organic ghost peppers are more expensive, so consider your budget when you're deciding which peppers suit you best.

Dehydrating ghost peppers is one of the best ways to preserve any extra peppers in your Instacart order! Slice your ghost peppers lengthwise in half before dehydrating them. Use a food dehydrator to set to 125 degrees Fahrenheit. Leave them for between eight to 10 hours.

If you don't have a food dehydrator, arrange your peppers in a single layer on an oven-safe drying rack laid over a cookie sheet. This will let dry air circulate around them. Set the oven to its lowest temperature and leave them for a few hours. If your oven's lowest setting is higher than 125 degrees, check them for about four hours for doneness. Once you've dehydrated your ghost peppers, you can grind them down into a powder that you can use for seasoning.

If you're not used to spicy foods, the heat of a ghost pepper can take you by surprise. Dairy products can reduce the impact of this heat. Drink some milk or eat some plain yogurt to reduce the burn.

After touching a ghost pepper, make sure you don't touch your face or eyes. The pepper burn can impact the skin of your hands, but you don't want it spreading. Milk can reduce the impact of the pepper burn on your hands in the short term, but it's a good idea to wash your hands thoroughly to remove the pepper oil. Wash your hands with warm water and dish soap, which will break down the oil. Make sure to scrub underneath your nails to remove every trace of the pepper oil.
