This idea works with any hot peppers. Sometimes more than one jalapeno is overwhelming for folks, so store these away and they’ll be good for use in the next few months. It’s a nice idea to store them in a salt water brine rather than in pickled (with vinegar) form. The idea came from Cook’s Country magazine.
It seems that many people in the Riverview CSA are into canning and pickling. I found this recipe idea from the Food Network’s “Big Daddy’s House” an intriguing way to use jalapenos and okra in one fell swoop. The original directions were a little confusing, so I’ve modified them here. The idea seemed worth sharing, especially if you’re a household that uses pickled jalapenos.The quantities of jalapenos and okra called for here may not match what you got in your box, but I think you could add in some of the green peppers as well to make a total of 1 1/2 pounds of vegetables (in addition to the carrots and onion).
