Pickled jalapenos #1

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
15 pounds Whole; blemish-free, small to medium; fresh Jalapeno chiles
2 cups Extra-virgin olive oil
10 smalls White onions; sliced, separated into rings
5 \N Cloves (large) garlic; chopped
5 mediums Carrots; peeled, thinly sliced crosswise
2 teaspoons Ground Mexican oregano
3 \N Fresh bay leaves
2 tablespoons Salt
3 cups White vinegar (5% acid)
2½ cup Distilled water

Scrub jalapenos, trim off stems. Set aside. Into a large, heavy, deep pot pour ½ cup oil (enough to coat pot bottom). Heat oil until almost at the smoking point, then turn off or reduce heat. Add onions, garlic & carrots; stir only until onions are clear, making sure not to brown any of the vegetables. Add oregano, bay leaves & salt & stir to mix; then add vinegar & water & bring to a boil, stirring often. Continue to boil & stir until salt is dissolved then add remaining oil & return to a boil. Stir in jalapenos & remove from heat. Fill 16-20 hot sterilized 1-pint canning jars (or 8-10 1-quart jars), leaving 1-½ inches head space. Wipe rims clean with boiling water, then seal jars tightly with canning lids & rings. Cool filled jars at room temperature, out of drafts. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use. Makes 16-20 pints or 8-10 quarts.
