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.
