Re-distilled Hot Sauce Therapy

A therapy-grade hot sauce could be made by "re-distilling" spicy food (passing it several times through the alimentary canal). The body would absorb more and more of whatever is absorbable in the food leaving only the boarder-line, unabsorbable, spicy, "aquired" tastes. The excrement might be "cleaned" before reingestion if it is possible to clean without removing the desired distillates, but hardcore spice- therapy enthusiasts would probably reintroduce matter without processing for a "purer" final product. The final product of repeat distillings of a carefully prepared meal would be a proof-is-in-the-pudding sort of way of turning up the contrast and brightness on an individual's taste over a certain period of time. Artists would evolve around this practice. -- Have you tried the Joe Blough, "Summer Vacation 2005?" Also, this would be a way for healers to be extremely precise about what they recommend as a theraputic concoction. The resulting "sauce" would be a distillation of all the boarderline aquired tastes they chose to eat at the first sitting.

       But how do you separate the undigested bland fiber from undigested spice. And is the undigestable spice really "better"?

       hmm... maybe separating liquid from solid? Maybe what floats from what doesn't?

       The undigestable spice would be "spicier" if not better.

       I prefer unadulterated crap; the purist in me screams, "Know! Know for sure!".

       Erm... yuk.

       One wonders how JHC knows that the shat-out spices are 'spicyer' [sic] than the ones that went in.
