Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I attended a local craft show over the weekend, and enjoyed a pleasant enough time (which for me means we didn't linger long enough to expend the limited patience I have for such things). Of most interest was the guy selling homemade salsa, as he had one variety marked "XXX stupid hot," which of course drew us in like a magnet. It was indeed the hottest salsa I can recall trying, and proof of that was MrsBlue taking a full scoop of it on a chip (I was a little more prudent), and actually giving herself the hiccups, something I've seen happen to others (including myself), but never my wife, who has the greatest tolerance for spicy food of anyone I know. We each got stickers proclaiming our bravery, and the proprietor confessed that the XXX salsa actually had pure capsaicin as an ingredient, which sort of seems like cheating, but what can you do? We ended up picking a variety two notches cooler (on a scale of like 25, so it was not exactly mild) made with pineapple and habanero peppers, and the funny thing about that is sampling that one helped cool off my mouth after the first one.
