Hotttt peppers

September 7, 2010

I learned a few lessons about jalapeno peppers yesterday. First, one plant is enough. I have three and each one has about 60 peppers on it. I guess I forgot that I only eat two peppers a year in salsa. Yesterday morning I cut up a basketful of peppers, blanched them on the stove, and put them in freezer bags. They didn’t seem too hot until an hour later when my sinuses started to burn. By noon, as I was enjoying lunch at a restaurant, my eyes welled shut and Caroline had to lead me to the restroom to wash my face with cold water.
My eyes and nose burned the rest of the day. I now know to freeze the peppers whole. Steaming hot peppers will clear out your sinuses, yes sir.
Have a great week! — Betsy
