Pickled Jalapenos (escabeche)
Deon Oosthuizen

makes about 3 cups of pickles
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
2 teaspoons honey (optional)
6 jalapeno peppers, sliced into 1/4″ wheels (remove the seeds and white pith if you want them less spicy)
1 carrot, peeled and cut into 1/4″ wheels
1 medium onion, peeled and cut into 16 wedges
6 cloves of garlic, peeled

Put all the ingredients in a non-reactive (stainless steel) saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Continue boiling until the jalapenos have gone from a vivid green to an earthy olive green. Turn the heat off and allow the jalapeno pickles to cool.

These jalapeno pickles can be stored for a very long time in a sealed container in the fridge. Serve with tacos, nachos, or just about any of your favorite Mexican foods.
