I've talked about my love of cleaned jalapenos often, I personally love the flavor but need to tame the heat... You'll notice I took the time to cut the membranes and remove the seeds from the slices, that's how I like 'em. I figure any seeds that stick and end up in the jar are meant to be there! The recipe is intended to leave them intact, it's up to you, you know your crowd:@) I do take the heat seriously when I'm working with more than a few peppers and especially when I'm removing the hottest parts... So I wear a disposable food service plastic glove on the hand that touches the cut peppers.
