How many jalapenos needed to make spicy pickles

Jalapeno Garlic Dill Pickles on The Creekside CookI think this is the busiest time of year for any gardener. As the summer winds down, we have to get everything put up for winter – currently that consists mostly of squishing tons of tomatoes into various jars and running the canner for hours every day.

I try to mix of what I am making, so it doesn’t become too tedious – today it’s crushed tomatoes.

But before I move over to the kitchen to get those going, I want to share my fast and easy recipe for these Jalapeno Garlic Dill Pickles. It’s a riff on one of the most popular recipes here on the blog – my Refrigerator Garlic Dills. This is another un-canned pickle that keeps crunchy and fresh tasting for months in the fridge.

You can vary the spiciness by how many peppers you add to each jar. Jalapenos can be unpredictable – sometimes they are very mild, other times downright fiery – right from the same plant. The only way to be sure is to taste each one, by cutting off a tiny piece and trying it. Or – if you are making these for people who love spicy food, it won’t matter and you can shove 3 or 4 of them in each jar.

Since I plan to share these with family, including the grandkids, I didn’t make them terribly spicy – just a couple peppers in each jar – enough for a nice bite, but the littles will still enjoy them.

I’ll make some Refrigerator Pickled Hot Peppers for the rest of us. It’s a good thing we bought a really huge fridge a couple years ago – I think the whole bottom shelf will be filled with pickles before the month is out.

So – let’s get these going! I think canning jars are easy to find just about everywhere, but you can get them on Amazon if you like: Wide Mouth Canning Jars. I also like to use these plastic lids on my pickles: Wide Mouth Storage Lids, though I was out of them when I made this batch. Keeping the metal bands on the jars in the fridge for a long time tends to make them rust, which means they aren’t as reliable when you go back to use them for canning.

And then – in two weeks, you have amazing, jalapeno-y goodness! Recipe for Jalapeno Garlic Dill Pickles on The Creekside Cook
