Chili peppers used to season food in Americas for at least 6100 years February 16, 2007Posted by daveintexas in stuff.
How did they do this you ask?
Well I’ll tell you. They analyzed starch microfossils recovered from grinding stones and cookware shards, and found traces of chili peppers on them.
They licked them or something. The article doesn’t say.
History tells us Christopher Columbus got the credit for taking chili peppers back to Europe and everybody went crazy for the stuff. So we have that to thank him for except we already had them here and appreciated them so what do I care what he did with em after that?
