Habanero peppers

Hi, all,

Just a quick addition to Michelle's warning about habanero peppers.  They are 
not for people who aren't absolutely *wild* for hot food (if tabasco is a lot 
for you, DON'T buy habaneros!!!) and the oil is quite persistent.  I love 
them and always wear gloves while handling them and then wash my hands 
several times after taking the gloves off.  The first time I cooked with 
habaneros I only wore thin latex gloves and they didn't offer enough 
protection even after I washed.  Unfortunately, I only found that out when I 
went to remove my contact lenses later that night...
