Pickled Jalapenos

Have you ever tried pickling fresh jalapenos at home?

Trust me, it is not hard at all! Homemade jalapeno pickles are ready very quickly, has amazing crunchy bite and are so easy on pocket. Try some today!

I love eating pickled Jalapenos topped on pizzas or stud in tortilla chips and salads. Pickling liquid gives amazing taste and crunch to Jalapenos and I adore the money I save by pickling and canning these at home. Ever since I was introduced to pickled jalapenos few years ago, I always kept a store bought bottle in my refrigerator. Since I learned to pickle these healthy spicy treats at home, I seldom bought a jar from store.

Pickle a batch then use in following recipes!

    Additional Notes
    For a crunchy bite, you can start to munching on these within a few hours of pickling like I do always.

Savita's Notes:
I usually slice the jalapeños before pickling but you can pickle them whole as well.
