Recipe by Lee of The Midwest Whitehouse
Pickled Jalapeno Peppers, taste the pepper, not just the heat. This is a variation of a recipe from The University of Illinois, that I found to please my taste buds. The absence of oil seems to bring out the pepper taste and not just the heat.

I pickled some jalapenos for the first time, using this recipe as a basic guideline. I did change the spices a bit, to mimic some pickled peppers someone gave us. Instead of using the pickling spices, I used a combination of corriander, cloves, Italian spices, and a sprig of rosemary. I kept the garlic, but omitted the carrot. It worked great! Thanks!
