when seeding any hot peppers I always use kitchen gloves or the light latex gloves.
if you get it on your hands and they start burning, I was told that if you soak your hands in very sugar water it will take the sting out. Wish I knew that when it happend to me...haven't tried this method out yet.

I love it also, The first recipe is very simply and I used it this yr. I had the other one filed but don't know if I have used it. I use splenda instead of sugar so I can eat it. I did red and green by the simple recipe last week...Happy Canning.
