HOW TO PICKLE JALAPENOS

If you ever made a quick pickle recipe at home, this one is no different. If you haven’t, no worries….it’s so easy, you’ll be pickling all the things after you taste how amazing these jalapeños are.

Here’s how to do it:

Make the pickle brine by simmering the apple cider vinegar, sugar and spices over low heat until the sugar dissolves.

Pour the brine over the jalapeños and allow to cool to room temperature.

Seal the jars with canning lids and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
