  • 6 large large jalapeños sliced, stems discarded (3 cups)
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled and gently crush
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt


  • Rinse off jalapeños and slice into evenly sized rings.
  • Pack jalapeño rings into glass jars (or one very large with a tight-fitting lid). Add a clove of garlic to each jar. If using one large jar, add them all into that jar.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine water, vinegar, salt, and sugar.
  • Bring water to a low simmer and stir until sugar and salt are just melted (not boiling).
  • Remove vinegar mixture and using a ladle very carefully pour the mixture into the jars with jalapeños rings.
  • Allow to cool for approximately 1-hour, cover and refrigerate.
  • The pickled jalapeños are ready to eat in 24 to 48 hours.
