  • 10 pounds jalapeños
  • 8 cups vinegar
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons kosher or pickling salt

  • In each jar add 1/2 tsp kosher or pickling salt, 1 clove garlic, 1/2 tsp peppercorns, 1-2 bay leaves
  • 7 quart jars



Step 1

Wash peppers.

Prepare jars, I use my oven to keep them warm. Sterilize lids.

Heat the vinegar and water with the addition of sugar to very hot, but not boiling.

Boil water in the canner.

Simply add your garlic, salt, bay leaf and pepper to the bottom of the quart jars and slice the jalapeños 1/2 inch. Pack them as tight as you can. Fill the jars with the vinegar and water mixture, leave 1/2 headspace.

Process in the canner for 10 minutes. This will make 7 qts.
