A quick and easy recipe for delicious pickled peppers! My husband loves these, and the amount of garlic can be adjusted depending on personal taste. We use a lot because we're big fans of pickled garlic too. You could also substitute serrano peppers for the jalapenos, cauliflower for the carrots, or add small onions. Pickles will keep approximately 6 weeks in the fridge.

These make excellent gifts. I sliced the jalapenos instead of chopping them and used a spiralizer to make carrot ribbons. The herbs/spices gave the flavor a new welcome dimension. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I was so excited to find a pickled Jalapeno recipe without sugar but with a healthy oil instead. I made it up and got it in the fridge and a couple days later I pulled it out to find that the oil had separated out and clumped up into a ball of spice filled fat at the top leaving the veggies sitting in a very strong vinegar solution in the bottom. I did try pulling some out and putting it in a bowl along with a little of the oily mixture. I stuck it in the microwave and zapped it for 10 seconds to see what it would taste like. It was way more of a vinegar taste than I really cared for but did I get the right mixture of the fat and vinegar? What I might try doing is taking it out of the fridge for 30 minutes before I want to use it and let warm a bit before I shake or stir it up. Then see how it tastes with some chicken or something. I'll re-review it after I do that! Read More

I can't give 5 stars because I edited it but we've tried a ton of recipes and this one is the best one so far! Other recipes are too tangy this was the right bite! (I left out thyme and mustard seed) Read More
