Pickled Jalapeno Peppers

I just got back from a week long vacation but before heading out I made this quick pickled jalapeno peppers. There’s always so much to do right before you leave on a trip! The night before I noticed a pound bag of ripening jalapenos peppers and there was no way I was letting them go to waste.


If you harvested them or purchased make sure you give them a good wash.


So in between some last minute packing and running after Diego (he always manages to jump in my suitcase and grab something), I made these spicy pickled jalapeno peppers. Pickling only takes about 10-15 minutes and can last up to a month if refrigerated. I used only the jalapeno peppers this time but check out another veggie pickle I made a while ago using a mix of carrots & daikon. If you’re growing chiles or find yourself with too many on your hand try this recipe, it’s really amazing on sandwiches, nachos, scrambled eggs, fish, chicken, well pretty much anything!
