jalapeno peppers

       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
       Bay Leaves
       Garlic Cloves
       Oregano
       Olive Oil
       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.
