THE world’s hottest chilli pepper does not come from a tropical hot spot where the locals are impervious to its fiery heat but a smallholding in deepest Dorset.
Some chillis are fierce enough to make your eyes water. Anyone foolhardy enough to eat a whole Dorset Naga would almost certainly require hospital treatment.
It is very important that I never get near one of these peppers. I am so incompetent when it comes to handling food, that I’m sure I would immediately rub the seeds in my eyes by accident. Then I would be blind.
