Good tip, Thanks.

But I'll probably still wear my vinyl gloves ... since my habs from the garden can blister skin.

My children still bring up the face I made upon drinking buttermilk. They laughed and laughed. It goes in their memory of "dad's face after he tried..." probably right next to the crab apples face.

You're lucky you can grow peppers Jenny. I have issues with them.

Wow. The acid and oil are 2 very good remedies for hot pepper. I use lots of pepper so I'm really thankful for these tips.

I can vouch for Jennys habs. They are HOT! I use vinal gloves too. They fit well and do not feel uncomfortable like latex and no risk of developing a latex allergy. I buy the kind they use in the hospital. I get a box of 100 gloves for around $8 or so. One box will last a very long time. I use them for peppers and chicken. I am not grossed out by touching chicken, but I find it easier to handle with a glove plus (less slippage) and it is more convenient because when i am done with my chicken prep i take the glove off and can continue other prep without stopping to wash up again.

There are times when I don't use gloves though that I wish I had, like when I get a batch of jalopenos that are super hot and do end up burning my skin so I will definitely keep this tip in mind for those occasions.

I absolutely adore hot food. Back in my days as a dishwasher (as a short stint between cooking) one of the cooks had a pepper garden and would bring me habaneros, jalapeņos, cayenne, etc. The days I neglected to wear gloves I wish I knew this trick. Unfortunately my current pepper crop has some major insect damage.

As a side bar, anybody have a good site to order insanely hot peppers? I can get thai chiles, habaneros, etc. I want to play with some more exotics like ghost chiles and others of the like.

Wow! These are very helpful tips, and I really appreciate you taking the time to explain how it works. It does make sense. Thanks. :)

I had the crab apple face when I was a kid, the tree dropped them right off the side of my grandparents yard. Man that was nasty. You'd think as ugly as they are, no one would want to eat them :)
