Pickling Jalapenos

Looks like I will have a bumber crop of jalapeno peppers this year.

Anyone with experience in pickling these little jewels?

I don't pickle them, I freeze them. Freeze them individually on a cookie sheet then bag them for later use. The texture isn't the best but you get a fresh jalapeno for your recipe.

I did some last year using my Pickled Habanero recipe. I can't remember it off the top of my head, I'll look it up.

I've pickled them and my habs. But now, like Andy, I prefer to freeze my jalapenos. Pickling helps tame the heat of the habs so they are easier to cook with, but I like the jalapenos with a fresher (nonpickled) taste.

I just did it off the top of my head -- no recipe.

But PEPPERFOOL.COM has excellent recipes for just about anything involving hot peppers. I use their hab jelly recipe and it's excellent.
