Pickled Veggies

If you’ve ever been to Nuevo Leon you’ve tasted those pickled carrots and possibly the hotter jalapenos with them! We’ve always wanted to try to make our own, so we asked Alejandro how it’s done, and it is very, very easy…. the best vegetables to use are:

Whole Jalapenos
Sliced Carrot
Chopped Green Beans
Sliced Onions
Garlic, whole
Cauliflower… broccoli… chopped…. whatever you have on hand

To make it:

In a large sauce pan toss in any or all of the above ingredients, then cover with a 50/50 mix of vinegar (plain, white wine, rice wine whatever you’ve got) and water. Bring to a boil, and cook for 10 minutes. When it cools store it on your kitchen table in a sealed vessel and use it to add some flavor to your morning eggs…. on your sandwich for lunch or with dinner!
