    do not put "easy" products ( such as "easy chili" or "easy garlic" into a hot wok or pan..
    they are stored in vinegar and that boils off when you put them into a hot dry pan.. not nice to breathe in...

    also, same advice for ground peper.. make sure it only goes in / onto the wet ingredients, if it hits the hot pan it burns and has a similar effect to pepper spray..

    I didn't look.. it's only garlic and chillies in vinegar so i assumed it was the same as other pickled veg..?

    Both are free, but chilli will still catch your throat when it hits the pan, even if it's the real thing.

    I often throw them into a hot pan, cant say I have ever noticed a problem. Usually with some onions tho - so maybe thats why.

    You have just solved a mystery for me! I bought some easy chilli a couple of weeks ago and whenever I have used it we have had to open all windows and doors downstairs as the air was really difficult to breath in, never actually occured to me that there was a link between the two, not sure what I thought was causing it! x
