Canned Evil

Post  CaptainNapalm on 8/9/2012, 8:55 pm

I got home from work tonight to find that some of my jalapenos were finally ripe (man, do they take a long time).

I picked about two pounds worth, chopped them up and pickled them. My eyes are watering and my lungs are burning like I just swam 20 laps, but I got 4 pint jars full of evil cooling on the counter Twisted Evil

I cannot wait to try some!

For the next harvest? I'm breaking out the smoker... mmmm, homemade chipotles... cheers

Oh MAN! I am jealous. I have a handful of serranos and poblanos coming on slowly.

Did you wear gloves during your pepper prep?

Always. Not only to protect me from the capsaicin, but also to help keep things sanitary.

The jar on the left is "candied" peppers with lots of sugar in the brine and some baby carrots thrown in.

My son still doesn't know what he is going to do with these. He said just rubbing one against his lips set up a fire. He did trade some to another guy.

I discovered the best way to remove pepper oil from your hands with a tablespoon of oil and a teaspoon of salt in your hands and rub your hands together. Then wash your hands with regular soap and water.

Wow, what beautiful evil pickles! Makes my eyes water just thinking about it, though. Hubby decided he wanted a jalepano plant this year, but he's been having trouble thinking of what to do with them, lol. Those plants are much more productive than my bells, unfortunately. He's eaten one raw (!), put some in salsa, and fried one up with meat. It was terrible when he fried it though! My nose burned and eyes watered and I started coughing. Next year he can grow his own if he wants them Rolling Eyes

Thanks! I remember when I was a kid, one of the neighbor kids came over to visit while my mom was canning some Hungarian peppers. He must have touched the counter in the wrong spot because when he rubbed his eye... affraid

I'm actually a chemist by trade. I use all kinds of horrible stuff in the lab without gloves, but I don't mess with hot peppers without some rubber gloves.

First Rule of Hot Pepper Handling: After handling hot peppers, never, NEVER touch any part of your body you're fond of. Nonna--been there, done that.
