Ingredients for Pickled Jalapenos

Jalapeños – Choose deep green jalapeno peppers without any blemishes. You can add other types of peppers if you’d like.

Brine – Water, vinegar, and salt is all you need. I prefer white vinegar, but apple cider vinegar will work in this recipe too. Feel free to add fresh herbs like dill or even a sprig of rosemary before refrigerating.


  • Peppers – Add chili peppers, bell peppers, habanero or banana peppers
  • Onion – Sliced onions (white or red onions work) and extra garlic can be added.
  • Veggies – Sliced carrots (sticks or coins) can be pickled with jalapeño peppers.
  • Herbs – Try adding spices like black peppercorns, coriander seeds, or a dash of cumin seeds or mustard seeds for extra flavor!

Perfect Pickled Peppers

  • Wear gloves and be careful when cutting peppers!
  • Use fresh peppers that are clean and uniform in size.
  • For best results, use kosher salt instead of iodized table salt. Table salt may make the brine cloudy or change the color of the peppers.
  • Store your peppers in a clean mason jar or glass jar with a good seal.
  • Be sure to wait at least 2 days before opening the jar to give the peppers a chance to soak with the garlic in the brine.
