Best Answer

Capsaicin, the irritating chemical in peppers that causes them to be "spicy," is difficult to neutralize. However, sugar can usually do the trick. Be careful, because the kind of sugar you use can make a difference. Simple granulated sugar is fine but simple syrups, like corn syrup, will do a better job but drastically change the flavor of your dish.

How can one tell if a hot pepper is ripe?

Usually, peppers are ready to be picked 75-90 days into their germination. Generally hot peppers get darker green as they ripen, and many varieties then begin to go red in colour. If you are waiting for a banana pepper, a jalapeno pepper, or a habanero pepper to ripen, you want to wait until it goes red. The red colour means it will have a sweet and hot flavour to them. Picking them when they are green is fine as well, but just make sure the pepper is thick walled and the approximate size that that kind of pepper should be.
