distilled white vinegar
jalapeno peppers, sliced into rings
Pickled jalapeno rings are one of my most favorite things. I've always wanted to learn how to make them--this recipe made it possible. I added some crushed red pepper, that was the only change I made. I did not add the jalapeno peppers to the saucepan, I went ahead and put them in the canning jar and once the vinegar mixture came to a boil, I poured it over the peppers in the jar, put a lid on it and let it sit like that for ten minutes before refrigerating. I have not used them yet as I want them to sit in the vinegar for a week or two to really get good. I'll update my review once I've had a chance to try them. Five stars for this recipe for just being awesome. I am so tickled I could make my own. VERY easy.
This is an excellent recipe, as is. I have made it a couple of times now, adding bite size pieces of onion and bell peppers, to fit the chips (actually, reduced fat triscuits) I use for nachos. I won't be buying the ready made jars of slice jalapenos anymore. It's couldn't be much easier. Thnx Chef John!
Super easy! I only made one slight change - I didn't have any oregano on hand, so I omitted it. It still had a great flavor! This makes 2 'jelly' sized jars full (not the tiny, squatty jars, but the small ones with decorative sides) if you use large enough jalapenos. A great 'starter' recipe!
Quick and easy! Also very good. I added some carrots, onions, and bell peppers I had around as well. Just doubled the recipe to account for the need for more liquid.
Just don't wear gloves when handling the jalapenos if you plan on removing contact lenses from your eyes later that day. OUCH!
I followed (almost) the recipe. On Chef Johns video he said that the sugar would take 95% of the heat out....so I only used 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar. I like some heat. They came out great! Thanks for the recipe.
What an awesome recipe! I had a ton of jalapenos in my garden and I didn't know what to do with them. This recipe came up in a Google search. I love the slight sweetness they have - I will never buy store bought pickled jalapenos again... these were wonderful and so easy! Thank you for sharing!
This recipe is DELICIOUS!!! I made a pint 5 days ago and have been letting it sit in the refrigerator. I tried them today and WOW! I may try my hand at canning a couple jars of these yummy peppers for the winter.
I doubled the recipe and threw in banana peppers and a few chili peppers to boot.
