Jalapenos…………….

So if heat is what you’re after, choose peppers with fine lines, and perhaps slacker skin for more kick. Likewise, look for younger, smooth skinned jalapeños for a tamer bite. And of course, you can always control the heat by choosing to add (or omit) the white pith within the peppers.

 

Avoid ones that are small or curved. Striations: Look for a jalapeno that is smooth without those small white or brown striations. This shows that your pepper is milder, younger, and received plenty of water while it was growing. Location: If you can find peppers grown in the USA, they have a chance of being milder.

 

Health Benefits – Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene — an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. That’s what makes the peppers spicy.
