  • 1 ยฝ pounds (680g) jalapeรฑo peppers, about 20 jalapeรฑos
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup (236ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup (236ml) distilled white vinegar
  • 3 cups (600g) sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric

  1. Slice the jalapeรฑo peppers between 1/8โ€ณ and 1/4โ€ณ thick. Place them into a mixing bowl and add the sliced garlic.
  2. Sprinkle the salt over the peppers, toss well, and set aside on the counter for 20 minutes.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine apple cider vinegar, white vinegar, sugar, and turmeric. Bring to a boil and let it boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Add the peppers and garlic to the boiling mixture and let it boil for another 3 minutes.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the peppers and garlic into a 1-quart jar.
  6. Simmer the remaining vinegar mixture until it reduces to about 1 pint of liquid (2 cups), which takes around 5 to 8 minutes.
  7. Pour the reduced vinegar mixture over the peppers and garlic in the jar. Seal with a lid.
  8. Refrigerate for a day or two (if you can resist) before enjoying. The flavors develop even more after a week.
