Storage experiments: jalapeños

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

These jalapeños have been sitting in my refrigerator a week now. It’s a shame to ignore them as I have- so I threw in the towel today. Well sort of. My current storage experiment: submerging them in rice and tucking them into the freezer, with the future plan to cook up the scented rice.

I’m excited to see how long it takes the rice to suck up some of that pepper power.

I have never had candied jalapeños, or the jalapeño ice cream… As a spicy fanatic with a sweet tooth, these must go on my to try list! :D

Hmmm, I’ve got 3 little hot red peppers from my pepper bush that I need to do something with. Think these ideas would work? I wonder if they are hotter than jalapenos…

The rice idea is very smart! Not sure I’d go for the ice cream. Good luck with that one!

This year I pickled some jalepenos and I also have some sitting in a jar infusing in olive oil. It’s been about 3 months, I may start using it soon. I will definitely try the candied jalepenos and the soup! Thank you for your eccentric recipes! (I’m a bit of an eccentric when it comes to food.. so this is PERFECT for me!)

I have made an escambeche recipe from simply recipes for 2 years now. It’s wonderful and uses Jalepenos, carrots and onions with a clove of garlic and hot apple cider vinegar. It infuses the other veggies with pure jalepeno goodness and we eat it right out of the jar. It’s very colorful and makes a great present. I am getting requests already for this christmas. I stick a cayenne in for flavor, but not everyone is into the heat.
Any pepper can be pickled I did my banana peppers this year too. It really intensifies the heat.

Candied jalapenos. That sounds awesome. I’m going to have to try that. I’m curious how the rice and jalapenos experiement turned out.

You really make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I’d by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very large for me. I’m looking ahead on your next submit, I will try to get the cling of it! Here is my site: real estate inspection in brooklyn
