Pickled jalapeno peppers

I harvested many jalapenos peppers, more than I could use up so I made pickled jalapeno. This is my first time canning anything. I had one 'real' canning jar and 2 recylced salsa and jam jar. I used apple cider vinegar and a couple of sprigs of thyme from the garden. The jalapenos are now hot, very hot. I used too much vinegar so I made one jar of jalapeno vinegar. I used this for salad dressing and it was really good. I wasn't sure if the recycled bottles would seal, but it did. I'll use these bottles first.
The jalapeno plant is now making smaller peppers. I'll have to think of another way to use it.
         I wanted to post a picture of my miniature sunflower that finally bloomed. I love it, it brightens up the "back" garden.
 Linking up to Wendy's blog for the garden to table challenge.


  1. Might I suggest whipping up a quick and easy batch of jalapeno poppers? :)

    The sunflower looks beautiful, too :)

  2. Thanks Ben! I think these may be too spicy for jalapeno poppers...although maybe without the seeds they would be OK:) The peppers are now very small so they'd have to be little baby poppers

  3. I would love to make this, but first I'd have to grow my own jalapeno peppers - hard to do when you don't have a greenhouse in Scotand (maybe oneday).

  4. Shaheen, the jalapenos do seem to like the heat. Actually the spicy peppers are doing the best in hot and humid weather. I actually haven't ate the jalapenos but I have been using the vinegar for salad dressing. It is very tasty!
