Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Handle Fresh Chile Peppers
When handling fresh chile peppers, be sure to wear disposable rubber or clear plastic gloves to avoid irritating your skin. Never touch your eyes, nose or mouth when handling the peppers. If you've forgotten to wear the gloves and feel a burning sensation in your hands, apply a baking soda and water paste to the affected area. After rinsing the paste off, you should feel some relief.
Tip 2
Food Facts
To add more heat, chop membranes and seeds along with jalapeño. To reduce heat, remove and discard membranes and seeds of jalapeño prior to chopping.
Tip 3
Selecting Mashers & Ricers
Mashers are used for mashing cooked potatoes, carrots or ripe fruits. The optimum design incorprates a flat grid-like bottom which is used to firmly press the desired food against a flat surface until finely mashed. A ricer forces cooked vegetables through tiny holes, producing a finely textured mashed vegetable.
