Carolina Reaper Challenge

After a long day of making guacamole, we did what everyone does and took the Carolina Reaper Challenge. (That's what everyone does, right?)

The Carolina Reaper is the world's hottest pepper, clocking in at 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units on average.* Our friends at Neighborhood Farms provided us with a handful of these beauties. We used a few to make a small batch of super hot salsa (limited quantities available this weekend at the Somerville Farmers' Market), and kept the rest for the ensuing silliness.

Please enjoy this video of Amanda and Travis absolutely owning the Carolina Reaper Challenge. All we can say is thank goodness for ice cream. And kids, don't try this at home.

Thanks to our videographers, Roz and Corey.
