Bread and Butter Jalapenos-Refrigerator Pickles






My grandfather & I would make bread and butter pickles when I was young. They are my favorite and to this day and I can not  eat a grilled cheese sandwich unless it has a few slices of bread and butter pickles in the sandwich.

The jalapeno plant is FULL of peppers! I wanted to try something different  and saw this recipe on Happier Than A Pig In Mud ( love the name).

Myra- this is as good as the Jalapeno Relish that you liked.  There is an added bonus- no canning!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 C sliced jalapenos*, 1/4" thick
1/4 C onion, sliced ( used a white onion)
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C vinegar-(used cider vinegar)
1/2 tsp celery seed
3/4 tsp salt

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a medium size non metal bowl. The metal, especially aluminum, reacts with the vinegar and makes the pickle solution turn cloudy. 

 Allow to sit on the counter for 2-3 hours. This point the peppers should be covered with liquid. Stir occasionally.

Transfer ingredients to a canning jar or any clean jar with a tight fitting lid.

Place in fridge and the flavor will intensify after a few days.

* please always wear gloves when cutting peppers

  1. Wow those look super easy-even a non canner like me could handle this one. :) How spicy are these, Linda? We love heat, but it doesn't love us any more...a little is OK though. I don't know if my plants are going to give me enough peppers this year...it hasn't been a banner garden year for us. :(

    Thanks for sharing this one-it sounds really good.

    1. The plant loves the heat! I have so many peppers that I'll be making this again.

      You know how much I love hot stuff and this wasn't close to the "heat" I like.

  2. OH BOY Linda, this is one for me. Jalapenos are going on my shopping list, and all the other ingredients I don't have here in the house. This will be for me for sure. Thank you so much. Of course, NOTHING is going to beat your relish, but if you say this is close, I will try it for sure. Thank you for posting this one. I will let you know when I make it.

    1. Cyndy- I needed to find a recipe so I could use my peppers. I didn't want to make the same old stuff, like you I'm always on the lookout for something different.

      Can't wait to hear how you like them!

  6. Yum! I just canned regular garlic jalapenos yesterday and still have a few on my plants. Definitely will be putting a jar of these in the fridge.

    Thank you!

  7. I could launch into Peter Piper right now, but instead I will say YUM! Hopefully my pepper plants will actually produce. Right now they are a bit of a disappointment.

    1. I have SO many peppers on one plant and I can't believe the plant is over a year old! I must be doing something right.

      Hope you plants start producing ( maybe I should come over and have a talk with them-LOL) so you can make this.

      Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again.

      BTW- the relish (link) on this recipe is fantastic.

      Linda
