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!
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
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
