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 have been in love with sweet pepper jelly since I first tried it in 1991. Anyone have a recipe they've tried? I can find a variety of them online but would rather use a tried-and-true one. :-)
