Ghost Chile, Ground
This exceptionally hot ground chile pepper is for the true heat-seeker. The ghost pepper, also known as Bhut Jolokia, was at one time ranked the world's hottest chile in the Guiness Book of World Records 2007. It has since been displaced by even hotter peppers, but it still packs an incredible punch.
It rates at more than 1 million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs). By comparison, the basic jalapeno clocks in at between 2,500 and 8,000 SHUs.

Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
