HELP -- My fingers are throbbing from cutting jalapenos!

LNG212 | Sep 1, 2009 01:21 PM

Okay, so I guess I'm an idiot. I knew I had to chop about a dozen jalapenos and it just never dawned on me to wear gloves. DOH (slaps forehead)! And now I'm paying for it. I've tried cold cream. I've tried ice water. I've even dunked my hand in half-and-half.

Any helpful tips out there? My fingers feel like they are on fire.

Thanks.
