I think you perfected the ABT issue.

I never get any and everybody loves them.

It seems to me, you loved them and she won't eat them....

You nailed it

Im tellin you Kev these were not normal jalepenos, they really had the kick of habeneros, Imade some ABTs a couple weeks later same process except i soaked them in salt water and the differece was night and day. I think the batch I was referencing in this thread were the japs from hell!

When you reach your desired time drop them in an ice bath to stop the cooking and firm them up a little before stuffing them. I use this method all the time and it works great for me. Experiment to dial them in to your liking.


I tried this with boiling water (no venig) for 1 min then ice water soak until I was ready to stuff them (1 hr soak?).

this solved my problem with undercooked peppers (too crisp) but took out ALL of the heat.

next time I am trying a 30 sec parboil.

Seems like a good excuse to make another batch soon. 4 ways right? Non treated. Milk treated. Salt water treated. Cider Vinegar. Be sure to let us know the results. Shoot... I may beat you to it.

 

Oh... and I agree... That girls a keeper.

Salt water works!

 

Personally I would soak them no more than 1 hour so that it still keeps a little kick to it. I find that 2 hours makes it way too mild, even the wimps that I know end up eating a bunch of them. So......to control that crowd from gobbling up all the ABTs, I soak them a lot less.

I soaked them for about 30 minutes in cold salt water they still had quite a bit of heat but werent ridiculous

We usually have good luck with our local peppers. I will do the millk bath on some for those that prefer them mild, but I find that after the first one, most folks don't complain and come back for more. My adult daughter is the exception. She gets the mild ones. Also I have noticed that when you grow them, there are hot varieties and mild ones.

The longer you cook them the less heat they tend to have.  So if you want less heat, cook them longer.   This has been my experience, although not too scientific.   Let me know if that works for your.

I just cook anaheims or a bell pepper for her now and the japs go to me and my boys.
