I use this recipe as a base to make pickled "refrigerator" jalapenos...I don't do the microwave part cuz I just don't think it's a safe way to do "canning." However, stored in the fridge, these jalapenos are perfectly safe to keep for a long time. I remove most of the seeds to reduce the heat, and add sliced garlic, a few sprinkles of oregano, and a little artificial sweetener to each jar (I don't use sugar), along with the pickling salt. Really tasty. I've given some of these away and everyone seems to love them. Thanks for posting!


  1. 60 or more jalapenos get a gallon of vinegar (white) mix half and half with water put peppers in canning jars.
  2. add vinegar and water mix and fill to 1 half inch below top of jar.
  3. add 1 tbls salt.
  4. leave lid off and put in microwave for 5 minutes.
  5. remove and screw on lid and band.
  6. they will seal and its fast and easy peppers are crisp.
