I bought a few fresh jalapeno peppers at the store today, but when I ate one with dinner tonight, it was basically just a tiny green pepper. It wasn't hot at all. Is there any way to tell if my peppers are going to be hot before I eat them? I bought the peppers from safeway, you think I'd get better ones from a Mexican grocery store?
Dude every jalapeno is different. Some are mild as fuck other would put a serrano to shame. But usually if one from a bath is nild the others will be too. I don't use jalapenos as anything but garnish because of this. Too inconsistent to be used like a main ingredient.
NOPE. It definitely does not. That shit fucked up my hands for a night when I roasted my peppers and peeled the skins with my bare hands. I didn't think about the capacine.
FYI get vagacil or denture pain cream to block the pain.
Up your game to the thin little Thai red peppers.
They got some good heat without being ass-rapingly painful
Yeah lol I use gloves now. I use thick gloves now. Regular disposable gloves didn't work out so well.
But I'm just saying that if you super fuck up, you can use those things to take care of the pain.
