Its chile harvesting time again. Those green Jalapenos are not going to stay fresh for more than a couple weeks. You gotta take action now, preserve your crop for the winter months. Why would you want to pickle your own Jalapenos? Pickled Jalapenos are mass produced. You can buy them anywhere, and they are cheap. Well, you know, as with many other things, the quality and the nutritional content are of paramount importance to me. Mass produced pickled Jalapenos are way overcooked, mushy, and lack any real chile punch. They are a sad example of what a pickled chile should be. Conversely, the pickled Jalapenos I bottle are carefully selected, sliced, and minimally processed to optimize flavor and crispiness.
