When life gives you peppers… pickle them!

October 9, 2010 Fitness, Food, Friends 1 Comment

I went for a run along Crissy Field and the Marina Green with a friend on Friday. It was her first run in a very long time and my umpteenth-million run in the last eight months, so we both really appreciated having a running partner. It didn’t hurt that it was a perfect day in San Francisco. The sun was shining and the area was buzzing with Fleet Week activity.

After our run, we went back to her apartment in the Inner Sunset for a snack. I pulled out a bottle of red wine and a loaf of freshly-baked (and then frozen) fougasse from Wild Flour Bread in Freestone, CA. This fougasse was chock-full of goodness — asiago cheese, roasted red peppers, and green onions. Andrea pulled out a jar of homemade pickled jalapenos. We warmed the bread and topped it with her jalapenos. Then, a sip of wine.

HEAVEN!

Andrea generously shared the process for making these little gems, and I happen to have a surplus of jalapenos on-hand from my CSA. Here goes!

Chop the jalapenos:

In a bowl, soak them in enough white vinegar to cover (I put a plate over mine to weigh them down). Add a little salt as well. Let them soak overnight.

The following day, put them in your desired air-tight container and fill with extra virgin olive oil.

See how long (or little) it takes for you to finish a jar. For me, about 20 minutes. YUM!
