That’s me… I’ve just bought my very first jalapeno, and I’m a little afraid of it. I have the ingredients for fresh salsa – garden tomatoes, cilantro, onions, and now a scary jalapeno. How much of it should I use to start with? I like spicy foods, but not burn-your-tastebuds-off foods. Hehehe!
writeeternity, I followed your recipe for corn cakes and they’re dehydrating right now. Well, they’re actually more like corn blobs. ;o) The mixture tasted heavenly, so I’m not going to be too picky about how the texture turns out. I added some cumin to it, too. So I want to have them tonight with fresh salsa and guac, maybe some olives. Mmmmm! I can’t wait!
Any jalapeno advice would be appreciated. I know about washing my hands after handling it, but other than that bit of lore I’m in the dark. I feel like I’m going to be handling a live bomb or something. Hahaha!!
