I know there are lots of people out there smarter than me, so you might have already discovered this amazing trick to seed a jalapeno or serrano but if not I’ll share my trick! Up until a few years ago I was using a knife to get the seeds out and would also get seeds on my fingers tips and at some point during the day end up with watering eyes after a rubbed them. Then I got smart(er). One day when I was in the kitchen getting ready to cut into some peppers I saw a spoon on the counter and an idea popped into my head! I tried it out and guess what? It worked. I’ve been using it ever since.
First you’ll want to gather your supplies: a cutting board, knife, spoon and of course your jalapenos.
Next cut off the top of the jalapeno and then slice them in half.
Here is were the magic happens. Place the jalapeno in the palm of your hand and take the spoon in your other hand and scrape those seeds out.
Ta-da! That was it. You are done. Now you can proceed to mincing your pepper or adding it to the dish hole and enjoy not having your hands on fire.
