Fresh Garden Salsa

Jalapeño peppers are delicious to eat, but handling them can cause skin irritation, like redness and burning, that can last for several days. To avoid this, wear gloves when cutting the peppers. If you don’t have gloves, put your hands inside a freezer bag or plastic grocery bag.
