Pepper Pop Quiz!

Last week I told you about the ESPN reporter who accidentally ate the world's hottest pepper. I shared it because I thought it was a fun food tid-bit, but little did I know that November is actually National Pepper Month! We've already got the funny part of hot peppers out of the way, so now I thought I'd test your knowledge. How well do you know pepper (both black pepper and hot chile peppers)?
