Some time ago, I was treated to some Korean Jalapenos. If I recall correctly, it wasn’t a korean restaurant, but the waitress did tell me how to make them. It’s so simple I was shocked I hadn’t thought of it. You slice some fresh jalapenos and cover them in a jar with soy sauce. Simple, awesome.
Today, while prepping my gear, i decided to see what other people are doing to prepare these jalapenos. I noticed quite a few variations, some including sugar and lemon peel, some requiring boiling. I decided today to experiment, and here is what I did.
5-10 jalapenos, depending on your jar size and ammount of available soy sauce.
Sugar, 3 tbsp
Vinegar, 1/2 cup
1)Slice the jalapenos, the thinner the better when not boiling. Since I was boiling today, I made them thicker slices so that they could retain some firmness.
2)Combine all ingredients in a pot and boil, about 10 minutes.
3)Transfer to jar and let cool. Move to fridge, they’re ready then or whenever. But as with most things in life, they get better with time.
I’m interested in trying other variations in the future and will document those experiments. Enjoy your jalapenos!
UPDATE: These came out pretty tasty, give it a try, what do you have to lose, $3?
