Habanero Pepper Salt
When people speak of peppers hot enough to melt your face off, there's a good likelihood that they are talking about the Habanero Chile. The fresh Habanero is small, round, and bright green to orange in color and is native to the Caribbean, the Yucatan and the northern coast of South America, but is grown throughout the world.
Beloved by chile-heads for its intense and lingering heat, the Habanero Chile packs between 200,000 and 300,000 Scoville heat units--that is 10 times hotter than the jalapeno!
If you are looking for a way to harness some of that face-melting habanero heat, but in moderation, try our Habanero Pepper Salt. We take white sea salt harvested in Mexico, and combine it with naturally ground habanero powder to create a unique flavor experience.
Habanero chile has a nice fruity flavor that accompanies its intense heat. Try a bit of habanero pepper salt in your fresh salsa, whether fruity or tomato-based. A little habanero pepper salt goes a long way toward spicing up seafood, poultry, beef, salads and vegetables, stir fry or even popcorn. Habanero pepper salt matches especially well in recipes that call for butter and lime. For a four-alarm celebration, use habanero pepper salt with tequila shots.
