Yeh. And for the love of Beezus - wear gloves when handling them. Wash with dish soap when you get home from picking them up at the store. I know that sounds like a bit much, but all it takes is one itch of an eye or a nose and if any of those things in the pile had a broken skin ... this is when the curling up into a ball and sobbing starts.

or... say, if you have to go take a leak. it's frowned upon.

That almost makes me want a whole in my ear.

Whoa. I didn't know they were that strong. I will wear a hazmat suit.

if you are only looking for "a bit" of heat, you might try serrano peppers instead of habaneros.

scoville scale...

but i'd still use caution. wash your hands several times before handling any eyeballs or other assorted sensitive parts.

Yeah, I think they had serrano peppers. They don't have a distinctive flavor like jalapenos?

actually, i like the flavor of serranos a little better than that of jalapenos, but they are comprable. i can't imagine they would adversely affect the flavor of a curry, but that's a matter of personal taste i suppose. i'd use em.

you could try adding some whole dried hot peppers and then remove them post-cooking. i've never actually tried that.

they sell serranos in my indian market. they're a common ingredient in asian cooking.

like i said, these peppers are all over the world, they just go by different names and they're easier to find in mexican grocery stores in the US.
you'd be surprised how much a nutsack can stretch. you have to stretch it yourself, not a woman. they don't do it quite right.

Yeah, I know what you're saying. According to Wikipedia, all peppers originated in Central and South America. But looking at the Thai Pepper, I don't see an alternate name that I've seen in normal grocery stores before.

I wouldn't even consider using jalapenos. That sounds gross to me. Curry ain't cheap - I don't want to screw it up.

i wouldn't use canned jalapenos. maybe that's what you are thinking of? you can enliven jalapenos a bit by roasting them (put a little olive oil on them and put them in the oven on a cookie sheet or some such thing till they are kind of blackened, then remove the skins if you want).

but still, jalapenos have a nice kind of peppery flavor, i think. i eat them raw all the time. heat levels vary a LOT (these days for some reason more than in the past), so you should taste your pepper (heh heh ehehe  why does that sound knotty) before using in cooking.

Well... yeah, I guess. I only just yesterday noticed how cheap they are to buy in the vegetable section instead of the canned ones. I always assumed the ones at Mexican restaurants were fresh, but now I'm wondering if they were canned too...  :hmm:

here's a pic of some hunan pork belly i had about a week ago. it has serranos in it. all they did was add a little peppery flavor and heat.



yes, commence the droolage.
