Chilli, Green Long
These are red chillies..just pulled earlier. They're have a similar shape and gloss to red chillies but are often hotter.
Be aware that chilli heat levels may change with each season.
- Freshest in December to April.
- Good for heat in every dish or as garnish, particularly good in Asian dishes.
- Store in freezer or fridge, whole, chopped or dried.
Did you know? Capsaicin (chemical that makes them hot) is technically a neurotoxin and stimulates the adrenal glands to release hormones, giving you an energy rush.
You can add sugar to a dish to help balance the heat of the chilli.
