A wonderful way to use those summer fresh peppers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In clean sterilized jars, place the olive oil, oregano, garlic and carrots and onions (optional).
  2. Mix the brine ingredients and bring to a boil.
  3. Pack your peppers (and other vegetables) in jars to 3/4 full (peppers will expand).
  4. Pour boiling brine over the peppers within 1/2" from the top.
  5. Seal by hot water bath for 20 minutes.
  6. Let jars sit for 3 weeks for the best flavor.
  7. NOTE: The amount of peppers is not given here. It all depends on how many peppers you can stuff into a jar, and how many jars you will be making. I think I used 1# or maybe 1 1/2# for this amount of ingredients.

Very easy, and very good. I have used this recipe for 3 years because I give them as gifts. People ask for them after a big pepper crop.

Miss Annie, these are AWESOME! I made these a little over a month ago and just opened up a jar yesterday. WOW! They are hot, but have a wonderful flavor! I think they are the best flavored jalapeno's I've tried and I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for sharing!

This recipe for jalapenos has to one of the best I have ever pickled, and so easy to do. I couldn't wait 3 weeks so I dove in a little early as did my friends at work. All of us have now shared this head sweating,nose running recipe. A definite tribute to those who love the spicier side of life. thanks, chickenman
