I decided to try making pickled jalapeños at home. I've tried store-bought pickled jalapeños and thought they were very good, and I've never been a big fan of eating jalapeños straight. They need to be prepared in a way that I can tolerate them!


  • 2 cups jalapeños, cut crossway
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 head dill

For the brine:

  • 3 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canning salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar


  1. In a jar, add jalapeños, garlic, mustard seed, cumin, turmeric, and dill.
  2. Combine brine ingredients in a pot and bring to the boil.
  3. Pour brine our over jalapeños in the jar. Cover the jar and allow it to cool.
  4. Place the jar in the refrigerator for 2 weeks before eating.
