How to Seed a Jalapeño Pepper

how to seed a jalapeño pepper

When I first started this blog I was still pretty new to cooking. I only had a few years under my belt and the issues of new cooks were fresh in my mind. Something happens when you’ve been cooking and baking for a long time. You forget that when you started out the simplest things, like learning how to cut an onion properly, were lifesavers. Certain things become so second nature that you forget they might be a useful tip to someone else.

When I started this blog I wanted to help people get into the kitchen with confidence and to help simplify people’s time in the kitchen. Hence why we’re talking about seeding jalapeños today. It may seem like too simple of a task to post about, but I still remember when I learned this little trick and how I thought it was so much simpler then what I was doing! It quickly become my preferred method because your hands don’t have to come in contact with the hot seeds, which means your eyes will burn a little less when you inevitably rub them with your jalapeño spiced hands.

1) Cut the stem off of the jalapeño. 2) Slice the jalapeño in half. 3) Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. I like to do this right over the garbage so that I don’t have to touch the spicy seeds at all. Now you can slice and dice as you please.

Are there any tips you’d like see on here that might make your life in the kitchen a little simpler? Spill the beans. I’d love to help!
