Jalapeños Apple cider vinegar Granulated sugar Garlic powder (or granules) Ground turmeric (optional) Peppercorns
Cut off jalapeño stems, and slice into ½″ rounds. Put the jalapeño slices aside. If you're not into handling fresh chiles regularly, consider wearing gloves to dodge any potential hand burns.
Mix apple cider vinegar, white sugar, garlic powder, turmeric, and peppercorns in a big pot. Bring this vinegar mix to a full boil, then lower the heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Toss in the jalapeno slices, crank up to medium heat, and let it simmer. Keep it under 5 minutes for flavors and a hint of crunch.
Scoop the cooked jalapeno slices into fresh pint jars, employing a slotted spoon for the transfer into sanitized canning jars, essential for lasting storage. Pour the hot liquid over, leaving a ½-inch headroom.
Whether it's for a spice-loving friend or distinctive Christmas gifts, these jars are guaranteed crowd-pleasers. Remind them to give it a little shake for flavor evenness!
