These deep fried jalapeño slices are surprisingly easy, yet sinfully addictive! Serve them up at your next party alongside melted cheese sauce.
Every so often I’ll find myself knee deep in jalapeños. Perhaps I’m exaggerating… but we’ll have more than what we feel like we can realistically use.
One of the most delicious and easy ways to use an abundance is this no-cook jalapeno relish – YUM!
Don’t ever forget to wear gloves. Hoo-boy. I have learned the hard way – – it’s not a fun experience!
Rinse all of those jalapeños, slice them up, and throw them in a 2-quart canning jar. Pick up a fermenting kit and let them sit for a few weeks, and use them to make fermented jalapeño hot sauce. It’s mighty amazing!
