Gardening: Picking & Pickling Jalapenos

This is my first year growing my very own jalapeno plants!

I should have grown more plants but I’m happy for the bounty I am receiving today! Next year I will definitely grow more so that I can pick, pickle and can. I am not canning jalapenos this year because, quite simply, I wasn’t prepared.

The recipe to pickle my jalapenos this year is from Cook’s Country and it’s really simple, you can’t go wrong! It goes like this:

Thinly slice 4 jalapenos (if you don’t want them too hot, take out the seeds) and put in a bowl or jar. Bring 1 cup of distilled white vinegar + 1/3 cup of sugar + 1/4 teaspoon of salt to a boil and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the brine mixture over the jalapenos and let sit for 30 minutes. They will last for one or two weeks. I doubled the recipe for myself.

Side note: If you get jalapeno juice on your eyes, soak a cloth very thoroughly in milk and put the cloth on your eyes. It will take the burn away fast!

Allan said these pickled jalapenos have a big heat! Next time I might take the seeds out first.

Even if you haven’t grown your own jalapenos, you can purchase fresh jalapenos from the grocery store or a farmers market and still enjoy pickling your own fresh peppers. We will use the pickled jalapenos on cheeseburgers, hotdogs, burritos, tacos and chopped up to put in enchiladas. I can’t wait!

Please enjoy my YouTube video which includes great scenery, my bloopers and all around fun because we’re Picking and Pickling Peppers People!

Buh Bye and see you soon!
