Pickled Jalapenos


Pickled Jalapenos is a must-try! Store the big chilies in a vinegar and sugar syrup for long shelf life and enjoy a better than store bought experience.

I have been making a lot of DIY recipes at home.

So whenever an opportunity or idea strikes me, I do give it a try.

V & I are quite fond of Jalapenos and love the spicy flavour it adds to the pizza. It’s my go-to topping for almost every pizza I make.

While I was shopping for vegetables one day, I suddenly thought of using the big-sized chili to make Jalapenos. I love chili fritters and have earlier pickled the chili too.

Once the idea took hold, Google came in useful. I found easy homemade Jalapenos recipe and I was good to go.

The recipe is very easy and simple to make and requires some basic ingredient readily available in the pantry.

It is such a shame to use store-bought Jalapenos now! Seriously!!

I have used this in pizza, pasta, and just to munch on.
