Can't believe I made this big mistake today. I had a huge Jamaican chilli bush absolutely covered in chillies, picked roughly 5kg of fruit, most prolific plant ever! Thought I'd make some chilli jam, so I started trimming the tops off, not wearing gloves. After 20 mins or so, started getting the tingles, that was 6pm. Washed my hands, twice. By 7pm the heat on my hands was increasing! Washed hands in soapy water again. By 9pm I'm not happy, so google possible better help. Tried olive oil, didn't work. Tried paste of baking powder and water, didn't work. The only relief I got was ice cubes in a bowl of milk, pure bliss. Started writing this blog and now need to go back to fridge and find more cold milk and throw in a few ice cubes! Message to self, always wear gloves when handling chillies!
Any better ideas?
