Discovery!

Take
six small chillis.
A tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
A big pinch of salt
Mix them all together on a baking tray covered in tin foil.

Place in an oven which has only two temperatures (tepid and core of the sun) at gas mark "core of the sun".

Forget about it for twenty minutes (which incidentally was absolutely fine the last time you did this.

Remove the now incinerated chillis from your oven.

Leave to cool.

Enjoy the searing sensation in your nose, eyes, lungs, throat and genitals if you're unlucky as the now airborne chilli badness infiltrates them all.

Cough and hack for half an hour with the extractor fan running, the free standing fan on full blast and all the doors and windows open. Apologise to nonhae who was unlucky enough to be there at the time.

Hey, it's not often you get to be grateful that smoking has wasted away most of your lung capacity. Also, not often that cigarette smoke makes things smell nicer and make the burning and hacking go away.

True, I always hoped that one day smoking would come in useful in a "Die Hard 2" manner whereby my owning a zippo would result in me saving the day but this is pretty good too.

icklepenguin: Not as good as my recipe...

Pre-heat oven to gas mark 3-4.
Take croissant and place in centre of oven.
Cook for 3 hours and exclaim "Oh shit!" when you dad explains he turned the oven off when the fire alarm went off.

I guess we're talking about equal potential for killing everyone in the house but I still feel that my one has more potential. I mean its airborne chilli.. right in the eyeballs!

Ooooh that's cunning...

I don't think it properly caught fire either, so probably doesn't count. Just thought I might share hehe.

Still.. its new. I've never heard of anyone incinerating a croissant before.

I prefer them heated using the three slices of bacon I put in them anyway :)

Considering how poisonous the air was when I arrived in half an hour later, I can't imagine what it was like at the time. You weren't planning to donate those lungs for anything, right?

Only if I can get some new ones.
