Thanks so much, Critter, for your recent articles with the recipes. I'm looking forward to next year and plan to grow some of the hotter peppers. I just received seeds for the datil pepper, which according to some are even hotter than habaneros. I plan to get in on the HPS co-op as well so I should be making good use of these recipes. Thanks again!

You're welcome! I hope you have fun with the hot sauce recipes. Don't be afraid to experiment... taste and see what you think it needs to "finish" the flavor. :-)

Make sure you wear thick gloves!

No kidding! As I said in the article, if I'm wearing latex gloves, I put on 2 pairs. I like those blue "nitrile" gloves better -- nothing gets through (so far). If you're wearing a single set of gloves, stop the moment you feel any discomfort -- wash (put straight dish soap on, or dish soap mixed with baking soda to help neutralize it, or use a bleach solution), then put on a new set of gloves.

Oh yes, I always wear gloves when handling hot peppers. Even the mildly hot ones can cause severe pain when trying to change contact lens (don't ask how I know). And I think the suggestion about turning on the vent fan above the stove to handle the fumes is a great idea. I encountered some pretty strong fumes from jalapenos, so I can only imagine what it would be like with the habaneros and other 'super hot' peppers. Right now I have only the basic latex gloves, so I think I'll invest in some of the blue nitrile as critter suggested. You're just full of great information, critter. Thanks again.

contact lenses and hot peppers... *shudder* Yes, do get some good gloves! :-) Sometimes they're in the paint department. Home Depot keeps moving them around on me.

It seemed odd to be including all these safety warnings in a food article, LOL... but I have a lot of respect for the "hot" in hot peppers!

Yes, but they're oooo so tasty! Very useful for clearing the sinuses, too.
