Personally I can do without the jalapenos. It's not the heat—that's crucial. It's that they take on a gross mushy texture. I pick around those to get at cauliflower and carrots, which remain crunchy, and the unpeeled garlic, its bite tempered by acid (though it tends to turn green). That's why I got excited when tubs started showing up in Cermak Produce. The chiles are kept at a minimum but the containers are stuffed with everything else.
