What jarred pickled jalapeños offer in convenience, they lack in fresh flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
What jarred pickled jalapeños offer in convenience, they lack in fresh flavor. For this version, we wanted a simple recipe that we could make in less than 30 minutes that would also offer fresh flavor and subtle heat. Distilled white vinegar offered the best tang without overshadowing the chiles. We brought the vinegar, sugar, and salt to a boil over medium heat until the sugar dissolved before pouring the mixture over the prepped chiles and letting them sit for 30 minutes until it cooled. Another plus: they can be refrigerated for up to a week.
