There is a simple solution my grandma gave me, for cold days and nights, for those who do not have enough money to pay the bill of electricity (!) when staying indoors, for those who run out of wood for the fireplace, and for those who spend many hours being outdoors under cold weather conditions. Bottled Red hot chilly peppers,swimming in olive oil, is the suggestion. There are some varieties of peppers,which have that unique hot taste. Red is said to be the color that indicates that hot taste in pepper. Some drops of this mixture, can keep you warm for several hours! It is tested and guaranteed, as i have been using this recipe for the last several months. This period I serve my one-year army duty, in an army camp located in the north part of Greece , where temperature reaches 15 celcious degrees below zero (15 C) during nights of the winter and have been spending many hours just standing at a viewpoint, holding gun and all that stuff, not having slept much for a couple of days. A small miniature bottle, is what keeps me going....
