    I have seen people actually break out in a sweat from eating hot pepper.I know it makes your mouth hot and something else which I won't mention, but could eating Jalopenos actually help to keep you warm on a cold morning hunt,and if so how much and how often would you have to eat these delicious things.

    I ate a whole Scotch Bonnet, once. Sweat was instantaneous. I was soaked from head to toe and there was a puddle around me on the floor. If that happened in the cold woods I might have frozen to death. In some cultures, they drink or eat something hot in warm weather in order to perspire, which, when it evaporates, cools. Perhaps if one could get just enough capsicum to dilate veins and increase circulation without the sweat. Might have to experiment.

        The reason you feel hot is the active agent in the pepper capsaicin, works as a peripheral vaso-dilator. So does alcohol, and there is a reason all of the survival books of any value warn against taking alcohol. Peripheral vaso-dilation, in this case, means your veins dilate and blood flows to your skin; you give off body heat, in the cold that can be fatal, you need to conserve body heat.
        There are few people who enjoy hot foods more than I. I have been known to stuff habaneros with cheese, wrap them with bacon and grill them. They are not for the faint of heart.
        Some time ago there was a Habanero syrup called Sweet Agony. I still have some and it makes a great ice cream, hot and cold at the same time.
        Leave the peppers at home if you are going out into the cold.
