Recipe: Pickled Jalapenos

Starring: chilies
July 27, 2011

Jalapeño peppers are among the most cultivated in the world, versatile and not very hot. There are dozens of different Jalapeno varieties, and every year I choose new ones to try.
This year I'm growing Jalapenona, a variety with large pods, which should ripe to yellow, but I'm harvesting them green and crunchy, to be stuffed or pickled.

I admit that a Jalapeno variety with smaller pods would be more practical to cram in a jar, but can you imagine the satisfaction of filling a jar with just five chilies?
However, the recipe is good for any type of Jalapeno or other crunchy chili.

Pickled Jalapenos


Harvest Jalapeno still unripe, preferably when corked.
Cut the stem, wash and dry them well.
Put them in a jar with garlic, mustard seeds and other spices to your taste.
Fill with white vinegar and let stand in refrigerator for a month before consuming.
