Calculating pepper consumption for a whole year
I eat a lot of hot peppers! I made some calculations based on last 6 months of dried red chili consumption and it looks like I ate personally 5 and a half pounds of these peppers in the last year. Since dried weight to wet ratio is approximately 1:5 that would equate to 25 pounds of fresh chilis. That is completely aside to my actual fresh pepper consumption which I dont have a great way of estimating how much I eat in a year. I would say that number is huge, maybe 30 or 40 pounds a year.
It's pretty crazy to think Ive eaten the equivalent of over 50 pounds of peppers each year!
Any other big pepper eaters out there? have you estimated how much you eat?
