Something’s I have learned over and over and still forget every time.
I love jalapeno peppers. I use them in a lot of my cooking. There are a few recipes I make where I use a lot of peppers in. I can chop a small amount up with no trouble at all but when I chop up a lot of peppers I always have problems with my hands swelling and the sting is horrible, sometimes it takes a few days for it to go away. But I am willing to suffer for the cause of having fresh homemade salsa. .
So here are a couple of things I have learned over the years, it is funny how I always forget these things until it is too late.
#1 use gloves when chopping jalapeno peppers
#2 when chopping onions after chopping jalapeno peppers do not rub your eyes if the tear up from the onions.
#3 When you do not wear gloves your hands will swell and sting all night long.
#4 putting your hands in hot dish water only makes them sting more.
Let’s hope I remember these things when I go to make my Jalapeno jelly.
So once again I do not use a recipe for my Salsa/Pico de Gallo.
Onions (I used white this time)
Jalapeno (I used red and green this time)
Salt and pepper
Chop everything fine and mix together. Let sit for a few hours or over night.
