Expert Tips

When working with chili peppers, I recommend to use gloves or a plastic bag to protect your hands.

I really like the flavor that pickled jalapeños give to a meal, even though I don't always eat peppers because they are very spicy for my palate. But I always save for myself the few pieces of carrot that come in the can together with the jalapeños. A short time ago, I started preparing my own pickled jalapeños–it's so easy to do, and I've never had to buy another can of pickled chili peppers. Apart from its great sabor, the biggest reason that I like to prepare my own chili peppers is because I can add more carrots than the canned version. My husband and my sons would eat the jalapeños and I stuck with the carrots. But even then, the carrots were too few. That’s when I decided to make a jar of pickled carrots: a bunch of carrots with just a single jalapeño pepper to give them that special flavor. This has to be one of the best ideas that I've had in a while because now I can enjoy all the carrots I like, and have enough to share with my family. I’m sure that your own family will enjoy them as well!

Directions

  • 1 Place the garlic, cilantro, black peppercorns and bay leaf inside a one-liter glass jar.
  • 2 In a saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, onion and jalapeño pepper. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3 When ready, pour the carrots and other vegetables into the jar. Then pour the white vinegar over the contents, followed by the water. Season with salt, close the jar and lightly shake to incorporate the ingredients.
  • 4 Refrigerate for at least 8 hours and enjoy with your favorite meals!
