After a "discussion" on the disposal of the remaining peppers in our garden, I thought I WAS DONE with them!
Hub brought in a 5 gallon bucket of tomatoes and what was done in there? A green, lovely pepper...a bell pepper? Oh boy~ I chopped and fixed salsa, but as I was chopping, I put a piece in my mouth~owwwweee! HOT OK, ENOUGH of that pepper~(I had already put in 1/4 of a jalapeno!)
Then the burn kicked in! My hands burned for over an hour; more like 3 hours!! To find a remedy, I googled it, and I consulted the best person I knew on pepper antidote, my mother. Try milk (CHECK); try vinegar (CHECK); try bleach (CHECK)...These all lowered it for a short time but what really worked was TIME~it took time for the hot to subside.
SOOO I guess a REAL farmgirl would know what to do...this cityslicker~farmgirl WANNABE certainly didn't know~but my salsa was pretty good and not HOT~imagine that?
|It truly does look like a bellpepper which is NO HEAT!|
With this said, I FEEL like a real farm
