Bumper Crop of Peppers October 31, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — austinurbangardens @ 5:52 pm

This has been the best year I’ve ever had for growing peppers.   They didn’t do very well this summer, but since the rain returned to Austin, my peppers have gone completely nuts.  As a result, I’ve had to start pickling peppers, because I can’t eat them all and don’t want to give them all away.  I’ve tried a couple of recipes, but have settled on one I really like, from

1 lb jalapenos washed and sliced

1 cup vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp salt

4-5 cloves garlic

1 tsp pickling spice

Heat mixture to boiling and pour over the tightly packed quart sized (steralized) jars.  Seal and put in hot water bath for 10 minutes, until jars pop.

    Thanks for posting this recipe, will have to try it. I tried pickling some jalapenos in the spring, and they came out ok but were very mushy. Just wondering if you notice that with this recipe? I’m used to the “commercial” pickled jalapeno texture I guess. Mine seemed too soft…


    • Hey Chris,
      I don’t find these to be too mushy, but my father doesn’t like the oilness of them, with the olive oil. I love olive oil, so I don’t mind. Let me know what you think if you try it.
