Fresh Jalapeno Sauce

It is best to use gloves when handling jalapeno peppers, as they can be hot and the burn can transfer from your hands to your eyes or other sensitive parts.

-Cut 2 jalapeno peppers in half the long way.

-Scrape most of the seeds out with a spoon.

-Chop the peppers into thin strips, then chop into small pieces.

-Place the chopped peppers into a mortar and pestle.

-Add a pinch of sea salt and mash into a paste.

-The finished sauce is (usually) not as spicy as the actual jalapenos; we are not sure why that is.

-Use it on anything…it’s fantastic on tacos, stir-fry and sandwiches.
