I am working on an article that is boring me to tears. Not only am I way behind on it, but I sadly just have no interest in it other than I have a committed deadline. So be it.
While going through a farmstand favorites cookbook, I saw a recipe for pickled hot peppers. I read the instructions through, noting that the last paragraph ‘mentions’ placing on gloves when preparing the peppers.
Yup, I lived on a little organic farm and grew hot peppers for the first time several years ago. With one arm in a sling I cut up those babies and made up some wonderful salsa. In the middle of the night I woke up with my hands on fire. Luckily, I instinctively knew not to rub my eyes or face…and I learned a valuable lesson the hard way.
But why do they put that paragraph last?
