How do you get jalapeno hotness off your finger?

Capsaicin (the chemical that causes heat in peppers) burns can be awful. In future, be careful to wear rubber gloves when handling hot peppers. Also, make sure you don't touch your face, eyes, or pets while you have this problem.

There are several things I've heard about that you could try to deal with capsaicin burns on your hands:

1. Wash your hands with cold water and either dishwashing liquid or soap several times to try to remove as much of the loose capsaisin as possible;

2. To deal with immediate pain and comfort, you may want to plunge the affected fingers or hands into ice water (this is a temporary remedy).

3. Capsaisin is fat soluble, so you want to try to get something oily on the affected areas -- olive oil, vegetable oil, butter, margarine, hand cream, whatever you've got. But you need to keep it on for a while, even after the pain subsides.

4. Other remedies I've seen to help with the burns are various acidic fruits and vegetables, unsweetened orange juice, lemon juice, tomato pulp, tomato sauce, tomato paste, etc. These should be applied, left on for a quarter of an hour, then removed. Repeat if it seems beneficial. (I've heard the same thing about milk as well.)

5. Make a paste out of baking soda and water. Make a thick paste, spread it on the affected areas, and leave paste there until it dries.

How do you get jalapeno juice off of your hands?

It has a high oil content, so you would use something that would cut the grease. Dishwashing soap should do it. Scrub for several minutes, including under the fingernails and rinse. This sounds odd, but I have found the quickest and most effective way of washing anything with a high oil content off your hands is by using a facial cleanser designed for oily skin and very warm water.

Jalapeno Peppers

Do citric foods such as lime and lemon and spicy foods such as tabasco sauce or jalapeno peppers help to burn fat?

No. Weight reduction is based on how much you eat, and how much exercise you perform. Reduced calorie intake (less food eaten) combined with more exercise, equals weight loss. There is no other way to do it. This is not really a black and white YES/NO answer. It has been proven that eating chilli or spicy foods will actually raise your metabolism temporarily helping you to burn more calories. Im not too sure about the lemon and lime thing, although I know boxers eat limes when they are trying to reduce their body weight in order to hit their weight catagories. Possibly something in them that prevents the absorption of fats?

If you are gardening in the Northern Hemisphere, then in general it is too late to grow them. They usually need the whole of the spring and summer growing season to develop well. Most peppers are sensitive to the cold, and will either die or not fruit in the open during autumn and winter.

In the Southern Hemisphere, you would plant them from September or October if not in a frost prone area.

Jalapeno Peppers

What makes a Jalapeno hot?

That spiciness we all love and crave comes from a compound called capsaicin that is found in all hot peppers. Interestingly enough, capsaicin is found in no other plant than the Chile pepper. A single drop of this substance combined with 100,000 parts water is still noticeably spicy. Isn't that great!

Capsaicin itself is tasteless and odorless and is produced by the glands in the Chile pepper's placenta, found at the top portion of the pepper below the stem.

Note: The placenta is about sixteen times hotter than the rest of the pepper and is usually removed along with the seeds (another hot part of the pepper) when preparing food. If you're looking for a good kick with your dishes, leave it in (along with the seeds), and see what you get. Oh yeah!
