$6.53

On one of Sandeep's sourcing trips in India, he went on a hunt for Organic Ghost Pepper. "There's no organic ghost pepper in America!" he said. "Can you believe it? I have to find some!" So off he went into the heart of India, so deep that we couldn't reach him via cell phone service or Internet. A few days later, he rejoins the grid and announces, "I've found them! I bought A LOT!" Since ghost pepper is one of the world's hottest chilis, a little goes really far!

In an attempt to figure out how we would use a lifetime supply of ghost pepper, Courtney said to Sandeep, "At home, I always add both chili and salt to whatever I'm eating for dinner. Why not just make a convenient 2-in-1 shaker?" Sandeep, incredulous, replied, "Is that an American thing? We don't do that in India." Courtney just shook her head and proceeded to convince Sandeep that KickSalt should be a thing! "Go for it!" he said.

Courtney then began the rigorous testing process to find the perfect ratio of salt and heat to season food where it's not too salty but also just the right amount of heat that your face won't melt and your gut won't kill you. A lot of water was gulped in the process! Finally, KickSalt was born! - The perfect ratio of Himalayan pink salt and ghost pepper.

Description


Add this perfectly balanced blend to any dish that needs to be kicked up a notch! ;)

Bhut Jolokia! Meet the Ghost Pepper, a deceivingly innocent-looking chili pepper from Northeast India that happens to be one of the hottest chili peppers known to man.

A hybridized blend of the Capsicum chinense (a pepper much like the habanero) and its genetic cousin, the Capsicum frutescens, the name Ghost Pepper means Bhutanese Pepper in Assamese. The origin of the name was accidental - “Bhüt”, which means “Bhutanese” was inadvertently confused with another word, “bhut” which means ghost. There are other names as well, and one worth noting in particular - “Bih Zolokia” which literally means “poison pepper”, referring to the intensity of its heat.

In 2007, ghost peppers were the chili champions, unsurpassed as the hottest peppers in the world with a score of 1,041,427 SHU (about 6 times hotter than the habanero). In the years since, they have been ousted by a few others including the current world champion, the Carolina Reaper.
