Pickled Jalapenos

Our jalapenos are doing great, we planted 12 plants in the early spring. Here is my first harvest. I decided to pickle them since I buy jars of jalapenos every other week. We put them on any Mexican type dish, baked potatoes, in breakfast burritos, you name it.

I just sliced them and put them in jars to which I had added a bay leaf, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a peeled garlic clove in each jar.

Mix equal parts water and apple cider vinegar over a medium heat til bubbly. Fill each jar with this mixture, screw on the lids and water bath for 10 minutes.

Umm Umm, love me some peppers.


  1. I'm so glad you've posted this recie, as jars of pickled jalapeno are so expensive. I'm goiing to bookmark this recipe, should i stumble upon some fresh jalapenos, I'll be making my own. Thanks.

  2. @mangocheeksWe love pickled anything, but we consume a lot of jalapenos. You should try growing a few plants. We actually put in 12 plants but a 4 pack is plenty for fresh peppers.
