This is a basic recipe for pickling jalapeños – delicious as is!


  • 10 jalapeños
  • 2 whole garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup can sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Divide the jalapeños into 2 equal batches. Place them in 2 – 16 ounce glass jars with a garlic clove in each.
  2. In a small saucepan, add the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Pour the brine over the jalapeños.
  3. Set aside and let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. 


Adjust the amount of sugar used for more or less heat. The longer they sit in the refrigerator, the milder they become.
