I'm new to this site, so bear with me. I read
where someone was looking for a recipe for jalapeno peppers. This one got me a very pretty
Blue Ribbon at the county fair. Hope someone
can use it.
Clean Jalapeno Peppers
2 Med. Onions, peeled and quartered
Carrots, peeled and cut in 3/8 pieces
5/8 cup of Salt
1 Quart of Vinegar
1 Quart of Water
Pack Clean pint jars with peppers, 1 bay leaf, 1
clove of garlic, peppers, onions, carrots, and 1
tablespoon of olive oil. Add a pinch of oregano
to each jar as well. Bring vinegar, salt, and water to a boil, let cool to about 175 degrees.
Pour brine over peppers, slightly cool and seal
jars. There is enough brine for 8 pints. Eat in
4-6 weeks, or when peppers turn an olive green.
It's easy and they turn out great. For mild
jalapenos, just clean out the seeds and follow
the same recipe. Hope you enjoy this.
