I love peppers and this is a super easy recipe.
1 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tBsp granulated sugar
1 tsp kosher or sea salt
1 Garlic clove, minced
Jalapeños, sliced in half lengthwise
- Boil vinegar with water, sugar, salt and garlic in a small saucepan until sugar dissolves.
- Pack jalapeños into a clean 2-cup glass jar. Ladle hot vinegar mixture over the peppers until liquid reaches 1/2 in. below rim of jar. Wipe rim with a clean towel and secure lid on jar. Let stand at room temperature overnight. Use right away or refrigerate up to 1 month.
