Peter Piper picked a peck of Pickled Jalapeños... and goodness are they spicy!! Just like my husband likes them.
With this month's Inspired Plate Food Photography and Styling Challenge bringing the subject of "Seasonal", my garden directed my choice of ingredient. A spontaneous decision to pick up a cute little jalapeño plant at the farmers' market a few months ago has brought forth more spicy peppers than I can handle this summer season. Turning a stunning red on the vine, pickling seemed to be the proper avenue to avoid wasting.
With just a few ingredients and 24 hours to marinate, these jalapeños add a delightful kick to eggs, nachos, tacos, and whatever else you would like to bring a little spice to. Pretty and colorful in cute jars, they also make a wonderful hostess gifts or simply a spicy treat to share the wealth of the season with neighbors.
And now won't you join me as we travel the world with our Inspired Plate Blog Circle?? To start, follow me just 30 miles up the road here in Southern California to Laurie Vangoechea, a beautiful friend and one of the most talented photographers I know.
