Awesome Pickled Jalapeno Peppers

Total Time

I had so many hot peppers, so I put this recipe together. It is simple but good.


  1. For the brine: combine vinegar, water, salt and oregano. Bring to boil.
  2. Wash peppers and place in jar. (I use them whole, but you can slice them, just wear gloves).
  3. Cover pepper with brine, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Put on clean lid and seal. Process in water bath for 15 minutes.
  4. If you want to spice it up you can add a garlic clove to each jar.

i have been making this recipe for the past 3 years -- i absolutely love it - i always put some garlic & a habanero pepper in each jar. the habanero pepper adds so much more heat to the jalapenos. ***** 5 stars or more

Simple, but sooooo good! I dropped a cracked garlic clove into each of my jars prior to packing the peppers. The flavor is amazing, and my first batch was a mix of hot banana and jalapenos. The photo I submitted was from my second batch; I did 5 half-pints of jalapenos and 3 pints of hot bananas. These are going to be so good in salads, Mexican dishes, burritos, and anywhere you want a little heat. Still have peppers coming off the plants so will probably do another batch or two.
