the cook, Todd, was making an Indian dish with some very hot peppers. He wore gloves, but it soaked through, and after he took them off he wiped his upper lip with his finger, and got the hot pepper juice on his lip. It got all swollen and red, and he had tears running down his face. I kept telling him to give himself a milk mustache, or put some sour cream on it, and for the longest time, he wouldn't, thinking I was pulling a prank on him. There was a window between the kitchen and the eating area, and he thought I just wanted to make him look silly! I finally convinced him I was serious, and it did give him a lot of relief. I also brought him some aloe from a plant in the dining area, and that helped, too. I felt so bad for him--he was just miserable! I've treated hot peppers with extreme respect ever since!
Can't wait to try your recipe with all the habaneros DH grew. He loves hot sauce!
