    January 16 - International Hot & Spicy Food Day

     

    It’s International Hot & Spicy Food Day! Archaeological evidence suggests that people have been using hot spices in their recipes for over 6000 years. Did you know that the hottest chili pepper in the world is the Naga Jolokia? On average, one of these peppers is over 170 times spicier than a jalapeno pepper!

     

    Throughout the world, there are hundreds of different spices that contribute to an array of hot flavored gourmet recipes. Hot foods can actually be very good for you because of their medicinal and antimicrobial properties. Garlic, chilies, onions, allspice, and oregano all kill bacteria and make food safer to consume.

     

    To celebrate this holiday, try a few hot peppers or hot sauces with your food today!
