How can I get used to hot peppers?
My hubby loves hot and spicy foods but I'm a wimp! I am new to growing peppers and I have only planted 2 plants that say "garden salsa pepper" and then a habenaro plant, just for him. His co-worker gave us an orange pepper that looked similiar to a Anaheim pepper. I cut it open, removed the seeds, cut a piece off and let him taste it. He said it wasn't too hot. So then I cut a tiny piece off, tasted it and had to spit it out! My whole mouth was on fire and my lips hurt for a good 15 minutes! WHY IS THIS? Am I just a wimp? Why didn't it bother him?
I had cut it up to add to some homemade salsa that we were making in the food processor, but instead of adding it to the big batch, I made him add it to his bowl.
How can I get used to hot peppers? Help! LOL
