Hello all

I have a recipe for Salsa that calls for jalapeno juice, I did a google search but didn't find much other than some very in-depth recipes for making jalapeno juice. Anyone any ideas?

Thanks in Advance!!!

It sounds like they may mean the juice from a jar or can of pickled jalapenos.

How much jalopy pepper juice does it specify?

If you are in a pinch try replacing with brine from a pickle jar. If you still want a bit of heat add some crushed red pepper.

Just use some diced fresh jalapeno pepper


Or choose another recipe... there are a million of good ones that don't call for jalapeno juice

fresh jalapenos won't give the same bright flavor that the 'jalapeno juice' would though. They are looking for that pop from the vinegars and the spice. Pickle juice is the next best thing, with some added jalapenos or crushed red pepper to give it some heat.

You are right though, there are tons of other recipes out there..but that's not exactly the point of this forum

I see! Then yeah, pickle juice and a jalapeno will do you just fine!

Sorry, but pickle juice tastes like pickle spice.

Not something I'd want in salsa.

If you can't find picked jalapeños then I'd use a little diluted vinegar or more lime juice (which I assume your recipe calls for).

Or like I suggested.... A different recipe ....

Heh, Stuart, you're new so you haven't realized yet that there are lots of points of this forum There are many ways to make substitutions and we do like to help people understand which will work and which won't.

Two teaspoons of jalapeño juice is not enough to make a huge difference in the flavor, but adding dill pickle juice to salsa will add a flavor that will not meld well with the other ingredients. I would either leave it out or find a different recipe.
