- Wear plastic gloves to protect your hands from the hot jalapeño peppers. Raw, fresh jalapeno peppers are much hotter than cooked jalapeño peppers, and can burn the skin.
- Most of the capsaicin, which is the substance that adds the heat to jalapeño peppers, is located in the white ribs that attach the seeds to the inside of the pepper. Including more of this part of the pepper will increase the heat, and removing more will made the pepper slightly milder.
- Wash your hands thoroughly immediately after working with the jalapeño peppers.
- Never touch your eyes while you are cleaning jalapeño peppers. If you get any juice of the jalapeño pepper in your eyes, wash your eyes thoroughly with cool running water.
