Pickled Jalapeño Review

So last night we had nachos for dinner and broke open the first jar of our homemade pickled jalapeños.  Normally we don't find store-bought pickled jalapeños spicy at all, but we DID find the homemade ones a bit spicy.  It was a pleasant level of spicy, and together we still ate about 1/4 of the pint jar on our nachos.

Something my husband, Jack, mentioned was he found the homemade jalapeños to not be as crunchy as the store-bought kind.  Next time I might try cutting them into thicker rings and see if that helps with the texture.  I don't know that I ever think of store-bought jalapeños as 'crunchy' so it didn't bother me.

Also these have just had the minimum 1-week pickling time, so they might continue to change and develop as time goes by.  It'll be interesting to see what happens.  Maybe less heat but more of a vinegar flavor...?  We'll see!
