Burning Hands Hot Sauce
I got five pounds of organic mixed hot peppers this week and was determined to try making a batch of my own raw hot sauce. But, in my haste to get thing done today, I made a bit of a big oversight. I didn’t have any rubber gloves, in case the peppers bothered my skin, and didn’t feel like going out to get any. So, so I decided to get started on chipping all the tops off, thinking I could just wash my hand frequently and the pepper oil wouldn’t bother me too badly. My hands feel like they’re on fire as I type this, yet the distraction is welcomed! Thankfully, the fiery feeling is relegated mostly to my fingers, and cold water momentarily soothes the burn. Doh! This hot sauce better be good!
