There is, however, a draw back that keeps coming back to bite me _ almost literally. Whenever I cut or break apart jalepenos (for whatever purpose), the spiciness gets on my fingers & then anything my fingers touch. Don’t even think of rubbing your eyes or picking your nose. Which brings me to the reason for this blog. I saw a recipe in this week’s food section in the newspaper for mexican brisket. The recipe includes chopped up jalepeno & since I made this about 30min ago, I’m having some bad issues – my lips are burning & even though I didn’t pick my nose, somehow, my nose is burning. I already reminded myself before the chopping about the dangers of jalepeno infestation, so I can’t figure out why I’m having this problem now.
I can’t bring myself to use rubber gloves in my kitchen – I’m not a professional chef nor is my kitchen a restaurant. Benji is sitting here telling me to make jalepeno cake for me. Any suggestions? I’ve even thought of trying to snort milk, but I can’t bring myself to do this yet. Advice anyone?
