Pepperoni pepper is as low as around 500 when it comes to Scoville heat units, whereas for Carolina Reaper, one of the most pungent peppers in the world, the value is as high as 2,000,000 SHU. Basically, it is really hot and guess what we did.
You’re right, we added it to our sauce. Not much, as there is only 1.4% of dried pepper (the equivalent of 14% when it comes to fresh pepper), yet it is extremely powerful (three times more powerful than our Trinidad Scorpion sauce).
Use at your own risk. Spiciness appears over time.
