green tomatoes and jalapenos

Do you know what you get when you puree 3 quarts of green tomatoes with 6 of the atomic jalapenos we grew this year?

Drain cleaner.

This was a failed attempt to make some tomato-jalapeno puree to use in chili this winter.  I was going to freeze it in portions but this stuff would have melted the plastic bag.  It had core melt-down written all over it.  If we had any bugs left in the garden this would have had them packing up and taking the evacuation option.  The small taste I had by dipping my little finger into the slurry has not only seared my mouth but I think my fingernail melted.  Two gin martinis have not erased the heat.
