Imagine growing hhe hottest chili pepper in the world called the Ghost Chili on your kitchen window sill. Yep you can now, and the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed this chili the hotest with an official (SHU) of 1,001,304 SHU.
The Ghost Chili is good raw, pickled or cooked, but best of all is a great conversation starter while your prep the appetizers for a dinner party.

It's Mother's Day 2010 weekend, and we never really expected to think about how the future would affect mother's the world over - but now we are. We remember getting a waffle maker for our Mom with well - not great looks. "Am I now supposed to make you waffles?" Touche Mom - but now that we have a family, purchases like that seem to be more welcome as we cook a ton, and try and not imply "Mom" make them for us.
If you're looking for something special this Mother's Day, then you should check out all the Mother's Day over at Amazon. You can always order Mom something and then have it arrive after the holiday as well. Whatever you do - please give mom a big hug for us, and take time this Sunday to pay tribute to all she's done for you.

Mary has written in asking for us to identify this rather strange looking kitchen gadget? Do you know what it is? We sure don't. It might be some avocado thing? An egg lifter? If you know please sound off in the comment and help us find out what it is.

Oh - did you remember to behead your bread before putting it into the bread box? If not - you're going to have to deal with some Zombie Toast. This toast in particular is actually just a harmless Etsy creation, but it shows you what can happen if toast is left unchecked. You can purchase your own zombie toast for $13.

We typically don't feature food to buy here at Kitchen Contraptions, but when we saw the D’Artagnan Certified-Organic Free-Range Turkey we had to feature it. D’Artagnan certified farm-raised birds are fed an all-vegetarian diet of 100% whole organic grains and pure spring water, with no protein supplements, added poultry or fish by-products, pesticides or herbicides, which for us is important - we like our meat real not unreal.
In addition, no antibiotics, growth hormones or arsenicals are administered and the birds benefit from an environment that never uses artificial light. Adherence to these principles led to Organic Certification in 1990 by the Northeast Organic Farmer’s Association. The result is an amazingly tender and moist turkey with superb flavor and 25% less fat than standard, commercially raised turkeys.
Order deadline for Thanksgiving delivery is November 18.
