hotter than the sun – the Scoville scale for chilli peppers

October 30, 2012 at 2:58 pm 3 comments

Most days something unexpected lands in my inbox but whether I find it to be a good read, worth bookmarking, junk or intriguing enough to click on a link varies enormously.  This week ‘getting your child out the door in the morning‘ was a good read, compare car insurance  was bookmarked for another day and a request for bank details for an account I don’t have was immediately junked.  And the intriguing link?  Well that was to this great infographic about chilli peppers.  Did you know there is a scale for measuring the heat of a chilli pepper?  Or that the seeds are not the hottest part of the chilli?  Definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in growing your own chillies or need to know how to put out the fire (mouth/skin/eyes) when a chilli turns out to be hotter than expected.

    hi there, I don’t have much to say on twitter – I barely make the time for my beloved blog. So thank you for your kind comments but subscribing by email or via rss feed to the blog is the best option for keeping up with my rambles

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
