Pickled Jalapeño Peppers


It's Secret Recipe Club reveal day. How has it been a month already? This past month, I was assigned to Jane's wonderful blog, The Healthy Beehive.  I enjoyed reading about her healthy way of life up in the mountains of Colorado, and her cheese making skills! While I would have loved to make a cheese recipe, I wasn't sure where I could find the ingredients around here, so I started searching for something else to try. I ended up choosing these jalapeños because we tend to eat a lot of Mexican food, and I thought it would be a great added touch to those dishes. A great added touch is quite the understatement! These jalapeños took about 10 minutes to throw together and cost about $1 to make! That's my kind of recipe! SInce making these, we have enjoyed them on burgers, tacos, on top of nachos, and even just out of the jar. When I get an overabundance of jalapeño peppers from my garden this summer, I am coming right back to this recipe so I can enjoy it again! Thanks for sharing, Jane!

8-10 Jalapeño Peppers, sliced
1/2 Red Onion, cut into slices
5-10 Garlic Cloves, depending on your tastes
2 cups White Vinegar
1 teaspoon Oregano
2 tablespoons Salt

Mix the vinegar, oregano, and salt in a pan over medium heat. Cook until the salt dissolves, then let it cool. Meanwhile, layer the jalapeños, onion, and garlic in a quart-sized jar. Pour the cooled vinegar over the top, cover the jar, and put it in the fridge for at least 24 hours. Enjoy!  (I successfully halved the recipe and it fit perfectly in a 12 ounce jar)
