So I had got these organic hot peppers from Life Organic as part of my delivery (http://www.lifeorganic.ca/), and I had tried to roast them for supper this past weekend whole and they just were too painful to eat. Today, for lunch, I took one (raw) and got rid of the seeds and inner spine inside and cut it up small to put in my salad. After I cut it up, I rubbed my nose and neck. Well now, those areas are BURNING. I thought it was just hot, but the area on my neck is hot, red and raised. Lovely. The nose is just mildly red. Now I can honestly say hot peppers do burn your skin. They really tasted good too.
