Pickled Jalapeños (Escabeche)


I started with a some beautiful farmers market jalapeños, cauliflower, garlic, carrots, and an onion.  I found this recipe to put it all together. 













Here's what it looked like in the pot, before the apple cider vinegar was added. 













After adding apple cider vinegar. 















Ended with five, pint size jars of the good stuff. Lovely.  I'm hoping that the sharp bite from the vinegar mellows out over time.
