I bought a few fresh jalapeno peppers at the store today, but when I ate one with dinner tonight, it was basically just a tiny green pepper. It wasn't hot at all. Is there any way to tell if my peppers are going to be hot before I eat them? I bought the peppers from safeway, you think I'd get better ones from a Mexican grocery store?
>>
The best ones have little white veins coming from the stem. But yes the Mexican store will have better selection available
>>
the smaller and uglier the pepper is, the hotter it will be
>>
The older wrinklier ones are more spicy.
>>
Before eating them roast them a little bit to bring out the heat

Pretty sure heat destroys capsaicin senpai

Dude every jalapeno is different. Some are mild as fuck other would put a serrano to shame. But usually if one from a bath is nild the others will be too. I don't use jalapenos as anything but garnish because of this. Too inconsistent to be used like a main ingredient.

*from a batch is mild

No Little Anonsan, now roast the peppers like Senpai said and prepare your asshole.

I've never heard of that before. I've got 4 left, I'll try roasting them tomorrow morning. Is that something I can do in a frying pan, or am I going to have to use the oven?
>>
>>7037485
NOPE. It definitely does not. That shit fucked up my hands for a night when I roasted my peppers and peeled the skins with my bare hands. I didn't think about the capacine.

FYI get vagacil or denture pain cream to block the pain.

Use the broiler of your oven. You don't have to oil them. Leave them dry.

Don't be afraid to get a good char on them.

I love roasting the peppers.

Thanks.

Or, you know, gloves

OP shouldn't have bathed his peppers.

Up your game to the thin little Thai red peppers.
They got some good heat without being ass-rapingly painful
>>
>>7037985
Yeah lol I use gloves now. I use thick gloves now. Regular disposable gloves didn't work out so well.

But I'm just saying that if you super fuck up, you can use those things to take care of the pain.
>>
You can usually tell by smell, the hottest peppers smell much stronger while the mellower peppers have a softer, greener scent
>>
>>7037475
This was a great idea. I'm not sure if they were any hotter, but they certainly tasted better.
