Day 25: Preserving Summer Bounty – Pickled Jalapenos
Today I have a simple pickled jalapenos recipe to use up some of the jalapenos from the backyard. Recipe is from ‘Everyday Food‘ magazine. This is a quick pickling method and it stays good in the refrigerator for about a month.
The recipe uses cider vinegar (aka apple cider vinegar) for the pickling purposes. Just a word of caution, boiling the vinegar gives out quite a strong smell and both my husband and son were bothered a lot by it. I pretended that didn’t bother me, but it was quite strong to my liking as well 🙂
Jalapenos come in different levels of spiciness, but they are not as hot as Indian chilies. My backyard jalapenos were medium spiced, so the pickled version of these jalapenos ended up mildly spiced. These pickled jalapenos are great to serve over tacos, sandwiches, wraps, even pizzas.
