Today I'm making pico de gallo. I've made it before (made tons and tons and tons of the stuff in a work setting before, especially) but never with fresh jalapeno. I'm excited to try it, but I also realize that I don't have any kind of gloves I can wear while I dice it. I'm without vehicle so running to the store isn't an option right now.

Does anyone have any ingenuitive ideas to keep my hands from stinging? Or are fresh jalapenos not as bad as I'm expecting (compared to the pre-sliced and jarred varieties I've used before, which are still pretty burny if you have any cuts or you're unfortunate enough to forget to wash your hands before touching your face )?

*Excitedly expecting baby girl number two!*

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

Coat your hands with a ltitle oil beforehand, DH swears by it, Personally I just wash my hands regularly and have never had a problem, I also try not to really touch them that much with my hands, I use a grapefruit spoon to get out the seeds.

I'm not a jalapeno fan so I don't have to cut them.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!
