The Easiest Way to Seed Hot Chiles
Stop the burn and save your fingers with this simple kitchen tip for seeding and cleaning out hot chile peppers.
Removing seeds and veins from jalapeños can be a problem. But using an old-fashioned metal vegetable peeler works great. Just cut the chiles in half lengthwise, then use the pointed end of the peeler to scrape out the membrane—no more fingertip burn!
Another way to seed jalapeños (without gloves!), cut off both ends of the chile. Stand it on a cutting board and slice down its sides, removing the flesh around the core. Discard the core with the seeds.
