Homemade Pickled Jalapenos

This has been on my mind for a while to do as a post. Both me and my hubby really love the jalapenos in our salads, sandwiches, as toppings for pizzas, in our wraps, in pastas, on noodles, sometimes also wrapped in our dosas and rotis.

The large store bought cans got consumed in months. It was only natural to make them at home. Especially it is such an easy thing to do that you would never go back to the store bought stuff ever again. During winters we get excellent crop of jalapenos in local market. The variety will spoil you but I stick to the tried and tasted, slightly darker shade of green plump chillies. These are distinctively different in shape from the regular pakoda mirchis. The shape is slightly tubular at the base. So as part of the home basics for BM I am sharing this first recipe

For 1 bottle of 200 gms
200 gms Jalapenos
1 cup water
1 cup white rice vinegar
2 tspn salt
1 bay leaf (optional)
1 clove of garlic (optional)
1 tspn cumin (optional)
1 tspn coriander seeds (optional)

1) Clean and sterilise a glass jar that you plan to use to store the jalapenos. Place the jar in boiling water for 10 min
2) Chop the jalapenos in roundels.
3) In a pan, add the water and vinegar. Boil it till its just about coming for a rolling boil. Reduce the flame
4) Add the salt and let is stand
5) If you like, place the bay lead, garlic, cumin and coriander at the base of the bottle.
6) Add the jalapenos to the bottle, press it in.
7) Now pour the brine solution until 1 inch above the rim
8) Seal the cap.
9) You can can it by processing it in a canning tool or simply place it in refrigerator.
10) It can be consumed within a week's time however tastes better after 4 weeks

Since they are readily available here I have never tried pickling them at home! Sounds like a cool idea.
