Interesting reading. I had no idea that the flavor and intensity could vary so much in peppers, even from the same plant. I'm glad the unexpected extra hotness wasn't yet another sign of me getting older
Next time..... now that I know there will
be a next time, I was going to give up on them..... I will cut into one and give it a little sniff test before I fully commit my sinuses and hands to strong oils. I'll pick up some more latex gloves, too, just in case. Right now I just use them for painting or staining, but I see it would be a good idea to have a pair on hand in the kitchen.
Uhhh, pun intended I guess
Thanks for the heads up.
