Here’s a picture of Epsom Market

A bit different from Tubby’s but I did buy a platter of locally made cheeses (one with scotch bonnets) and two Cornish Pasties. 🤪

You are right, cast iron mouth. After the pancreatitis I am retraining my pancreas and stomach to accept hot food. I love cheese sandwiches with sliced raw onion, sliced fresh chilli and mayonnaise. I’m not kissable after that 😻. 🤪😂🤣

Will have to look out for the scotch bonnet cheese. Didn't know there was such a thing!!

Neither did I. This was part of a mixed cheese platter from the farmers market so assume locally produced. They sold cheeses, chutneys and jams.

Have you tried growing scotch bonnet? I did so for the first time last summer though I’ve grown chillies for years. I have made chilli oil out of some of them especially to drizzle on pizza and pasta.

It is in summer when stalls pack the market square. It then looks very much like Tubby’s market with loads of fresh colourful veg.

I do love my fresh chilli but I think I’m a whimp compared to you as I don’t think I can go any hotter than 350,000 SHU.

I do have the sauces Absolute Insanity and Total Insanity in my store cupboards and like to put a few drops on a bacon sandwich and I’m unable to eat Pot Noodles without chilli flakes 🤪. Within moderation I do put chilli in most things I eat (exceptions being on my cornflakes).

😂 I do tend to go overboard at times, specially with chilli flakes, but I do live to regret it haha

PS... The great Dorset Chilli Festival is always a time to stock up on Andrex and comfy bum......

Goodness, what are you like?? I can’t compete with that so I will go chop some chilli to go in my evening stir fry.

I love to see pictures of places that I've never been to, especially when it's taken in a different country than where I live ! 🙂
