It’s all about the Jalapenos……..


* When buying; Fresh jalapeño should be glossy and firm, with no bruising or soft patches.

* Fresh jalapeño should be kept in a perforated bag in the fridge – they’ll last for around 2 weeks. Chipotles will keep for a long time stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Chipotles will keep for a long time stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

* Wear gloves (latex or other protective gloves) when handling jalapeños: The volatile compounds released when they’re sliced can burn hands, cause eyes to tear, and even irritate lungs.

* The longer you cook a pepper, the sweeter and less hot it’ll become. Don’t like your peppers that hot? Just cook them a little longer.
