...do not lick fingers!!!!!


I made Quesadillas for dinner and I wanted to put some sliced jalapeños in them and without thinking I licked the juice off my fingers after I finished putting them on! (The canned type) I also put tomatoes in them and in the end, after my tongue stopped burning!, they were real good!

DH didn't quite think so though....I made my red head turn allll red! Guess I'll have to leave them off of his next time!

i thought you were going to say you rubbed your eyes after handling them. ouch! that'd hurt!!! has the hotness worn off yet??? next time, wear gloves when cutting peppers!! it works well and keeps the juice off your hands/from absorbing into your skin (sometimes you cant wash it all off at once and it can still irritate your eyes if you rub them/ etc)

Yikes! Someone I know had a bet with some friends to eat jalapenos. The other people couldn't handle eating them so they bowed out. He thought he would be smart and eat them whole. Little did he know that something else would be burning the next time he went to the toilet!

I am glad that it was just your mouth and not anything else!

Actually my stomach didn't so much care for them either so something else did burn. I was wishing for a squirt bottle filled with some ice water!

But they tasted so good!

My worst experience was with habaneros. HOLY COW, those things are brutal!

The jalapenos here in Canada are very mild, like sweet peppers.

One of the ladies at my church grows lots of veggies and things. (Her husband works in a nursery and they have their own greenhouse too.) Last year they grew whatever peppers are considered second to haberneros and they were so bad she pretty much burnt her hand when she got juice on it! I don't know how they ever ate those things!!!

I remember making salsa one year and chopped lots of jalepeno's. My hand "burned" terribly!! I called nurse direct and asked for advise and they didn't have any. I used milk, ice nothing helped. The nurses said its actually a chemical burn on my hands-yikes!! I use gloved now but one of my SIL's suggested using hemmoroid ointment (haven't tried it though).

Oh my! If it can burn our hands like that, is it really any good for our bodies!?! Guess I'll stick to just a bit at a time!

My BIL made some salsa using habenero peppers. I'm not kidding you, that stuff actually sat there in the bowl bubbling, like a lava pot or something. It was really pretty good, after the first couple of bites your mouth was pretty numb, but you could still taste the flavors of all the other things. I look forward to his next visit and will request the salsa again. But I like hot things, tho the older I get the more they don't like me!

Hot peppers don't hurt you, and are actually good for you. They sure help numb you to the humidity and heat in Texas.

I use a fork and knife to cut the pepper in half, and a small spoon to scoop the ribs and seeds (that's where the heat is). Then I slice the pepper, holding it with a fork. I don't touch the pepper at all.
