  • 1 1/2 lb fresh jalapenos

  • 1 pc. small onion - halved then sliced
  • 2 cup cider vinegar
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons mustard seed
  • 2 tablespoon garlic powder


  • Slice jalapenos and add the carrots, peppers and onions. Mix cider vinegar, sugar, mustard seed and garlic in a medium stainless steel pot, bringing to a slow boil.
  • Reduce for 5 minutes to a simmer. Add jalapenos and other veggies and continue at the simmer for 5 minutes more.
  • Load sterilized jars with jalapenos and veggie mixture first and then add liquid filling the jars leaving a 1/4 headspace. Remove air and refill if necessary. Wipe rim, add hot lids/rings and process in a water bath for 15 minutes.
