Quick Pickled Jalapenos

 

Need to add a kick to your burger, nachos or pizza? Try these Quick Pickled Jalapenos.

 

6 jalapenos sliced into rings

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup vinegar

1 tbs sugar

½ tsp salt

1 clove of garlic, pressed

½ tsp turmeric

 

Place water, vinegar, sugar, salt, garlic and turmeric in a large microwave safe bowl, nuke for 3-5 minutes until steaming hot. Carefully remove from microwave, stir to combined and let cool 5-10 minutes.

 

Place jalapeno rings into a 4 oz. jar with a tight fitting lid, pour in vinegar mixture, cover and refrigerate.

 

These turned out great, not sharp and mushy like the grocery store kind.

Can’t wait for nacho night.

I’m crowdsourcing!  Help a girl out, please?

  • What is the best snacky type junk food you’ve ever had?  (Of the fries or fried jalapenos or pickles or okra variety.  Hell, could be churros or Twinkies or whatever.  Carnival and bar & grill type food, I guess.)  Anywhere in the world.  Where did it come from, and why was it awesome?  I have a character who has a thing about that kind of food, and he has access to anywhere on the planet.  If that thing came from a tiny little random tiki bar in Peru, go for it.
  • Same goes for pie.  Different character, and this one needs to stay continental US, Canada, or Mexico, with a focus on the US.
  • I also need to do a tacky as hell Vegas wedding.  What the hell kind of wedding would be most entertaining to you, if you were a guest?
  • My Dean Winchester is a professor.  What kind?  I’m leaning toward engineering, because it lets him tinker with things, and I’d love it if he also got to blow things up or set them on fire.  I know practically nothing about engineering, so if someone could give me a clue about what kind would be good, that’d be amazing!
  • I never went to the kind of college where there was a Greek system or the concept of a doctorate or anything.  Can someone answer some questions on how the “traditional” university experience works?

ME:
-wakes up, goes into the kitchen, eats a pickled jalapeno to get everything in my face working.-
-parents get grossed out-

ALSO ME:
-finally shut off the netbook last night during drunken rampage because MIGHT AS WELL SAVE ON ELECTRICITY AND STOP WAITING FOR MSN TO RING SINCE SE IS DEAD-
-finds tl;dr message from SE on AIM-

HOW CONVENIENT. I SHUT OFF MSN AND SUDDENLY GET CONTACTED. I AM BUSY EATING A PICKLED JALAPENO, ASSHOLE. OH YES. THE BURN. THE BURN FEELS GOOD. WATERING THE EYES, MOFO.

UPDATE: READING THE TL;DR… GOD. IT IS TOO EARLY FOR THIS NONSENSE.
