The original idea for the name came from the yellow bird pepper, which is a distant Chinese relative of the habanero and comes out looking like tiny, plump, cartoon birds. The reason for the name of these peppers is that birds are completely immune to spice and the peppers in the “bird” family are so small that they are eaten whole by birds. This is a food source untapped by all other animals and the peppers are so hot they even deter insects. These spicy treats eaten in significant quantities by birds start to lend their flavor to the birds flesh and actually deters predators! The seeds pass whole through the birds digestive system and they propagate the existence of their favorite little meal. It is a really beautiful love story.
Furthermore, in my search for awesome habanera sauces I found out that a number of companies make a plain habanero sauce that is specifically for coating birdseed so squirrels and other rodents don’t eat it. Isn’t that crazy?
I realized right then that I’m JUST like those birds. Usually the food I make is so spicy or so covered in spicy sauce that the uninitiated can’t eat it. It makes my food special, and it makes me, and those of my ilk…yellowbirds.
