Pam Davenport gave us an excellent talk about her ’Chilli Zoo’. She grows many different varieties of chillies and is particularly interested in their taste. She explained which ones had particular heat and also the Scoville units for measuring the heat of a chilli. Many samples were passed round for us to smell the aroma. Her display of oils, jams, marmalade and dried and smoked chillies was very eye catching, and we were also able to taste and buy all her products. She made her presentation very interesting and Sarah Westaby gave the vote of thanks.
