ISO: Pickling Jalapeno's Recipe
I found this site doing a Google search on pickling Jalapeno peppers, but I didn't really see a recipe technique for doing it. I am requesting recipes and vairations for doing this, preferable whole jalapeno's... and NOT the refrigerated kind.
We have an abundance of jalapeno's this year and I don't want them to go to waste. We love them and have been buying the canned variety at the grocery store, some were canned in jars on the west coast, the ones we are buying now in NC are in cans, which we definitely do not like since they are less convenient to store. Both kinds however include other vegetables, garlic always... carrots, cauliflower, even baby corn or okra depending on the brand.
I am most interested in finding a recipe that can replicate the jarred preservation of these peppers and to include garlic ect. I have never done this before! Nor do I have much experience with canning period. We are trying to grow our own and preserve... We have gardened before and done that well... but grown things we didn't have enough to preserve. This year for the first time... our tomato's are doing great and the jalapeno's are too. Hard to believe we have enough now for canning. For the last 3 years we were unable to get even ONE edible tomato, but the bees are out for the first time I've seen in years!! Yea!
Thanks for any and all responses ahead of time.
