Dangerous ABT's

Doing burgers for supper, the Mrs, wanted ABT's for an appy. No problem, Left a few to many of those little seeds in there. Well when she bit into her first ABT, she was gasping and ran for milk. I gotta admit they were a little on the warm side. Had me going a bit. She wasn't impressed to say the least. Burgers turned out good though. A few posts back I wanted to play with Haberero's. That might have to be when she is away for a meal.
Lesson Learned. It was kind of fun to watch 
:D

    When I'm making ABTs or salsa my wife makes me sleep in the spare bedroom...Bought a $10 corer doodad from Williams Sonoma that really does a good job on ripping out the middle of the japalenos without having to slice them in two.  Still need to wash out the seeds though.  Found that a ziploc bag with the tip cut off makes it a lot more easy to fill the little suckers.

    Love your Plan BYS1981. Be sure you know which killer ABT to hand to your buddy ;)

  • Most of the heat comes from the ribs or veins of the peppers not the seeds. If you don't want to much heat be sure to completely remove them and you should be ok

    smokesniffer, the jalapenos have been hit and miss this year.  One batch I buy will be mild and the next batch will be hotter than a firecracker.

    I wish jalapenos were more consistent in heat.  I am on a big serrano kick right now for some reason.

    @ nolaegghead:

    I've had to wear a mask when doing a couple of hundred jalapenos for canning...that link is too funny.

    @ Ottawa Eggman I didn't realize that the veins or ribs carry more heat than the seeds. Thanks, that does make sense, this time I didn't core out all the rib. I did leave more seeds than normal though. Maybe a mixture of both eh? And as Austin said  hit and miss with the heat.

    San Marcos brand jalapenos - they're canned.  Pickled.  UNBELIEVABLE.  My brother and I would open a can like a jar of fine caviar when one or the other would visit, and we'd OD on them.  Damn capsicum - pepper spraying the GI tract isn't wise, one finds out the day after.  I think I need to try to make them atomic....hmmmm.
