21. Happily . . .
How can you not eat them? Spice of life. Full of Vitamin C. Can't eat a plate of eggs or a burger without them.

Here are a couple of ways that are supposed to help the uninitiated (as we all were at one time). Try a spoonful of sugar when your mouth is on fire. The Mexicans make these wonderful praline candies that are traditionally enjoyed after one of their meals, which are, of course, full of sugar.

I've heard other people swear by milk. This probably helps out the gastrointestinal parts somewhat.

Removing the placenta and seeds before eating them helps to cool the heat. But don't rub your eyes for a couple of days.

Trust me, you will feel the heat again, but probably not until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, stay away from the habaneros. On the heat scale, jalapenos are at 1500. Habaneros--300,000.
