My father and his two brothers every year would plant the hottest hot pepper plants that they could find. Sometimes would even save the seeds and try to grow the hottest from the previous year. They would nurture, water, fertilize and watch their crops grow until it way time to harvest. They would brag to one another, watch out, I’ll be the winner this year!
The brothers would get together and would jar the heat seeking missile peppers and test out on a home made pizza! All 3 would sit at the table, passing the dishcloths over their heads, sweat pouring off their brow, turning red in the face, until they would admit to one another who had grown the hottest pepper! Now it’s become a family tradition, who can dare the heat!
