Ingredients

  • 10

    large jalapeno peppers, sliced

  • 3

    tablespoons sugar (I like these kind of sweet, so use less or no sugar if you don’t)

  • 3/4

    cup white distilled vinegar

  • 3/4

    cup water

  • 1

    tablespoon kosher salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon oregano

  • 1

    clove garlic, crushed

Directions

Wash the jalapenos, and slice thin with a sharp knife (a serrated knife works best). NOTE: Be sure to wash your hands, well, after slicing jalapenos. One wipe near the eyes, and you'll be crying for a while. Place the sliced peppers into a strainer and rinse. with cold water; set aside. Brine: In a pot, add the sugar, salt and white vinegar, water and the oregano (I used Mexican oregano). Add the crushed garlic clove. Bring the brining liquid to a boil, then toss in the pepper slices and crushed garlic. Turn off the heat, give the peppers a stir. WARNING: Do NOT inhale the steam! I speak from experience. It will clear your lungs super fast-- the fumes are strong! Let the peppers cool for a bit-- about 10 minutes. You will see that the bright green peppers will turn a "Khaki green". This is normal, and there is no way to prevent the color change. Using tongs, pack a clean Mason jar with the peppers, then cover with the brine. NOTE: I used an 8 oz. jar. We are not doing a traditional "canning" where you must use a sterilized jar, and need to water can these. These are stored in the refrigerator. I have not tried to "can" these, but I would imagine that this would work as long as you create a good vacuum seal for dry storage.
