Yield: 6 servings
|1½ pounds||Serrano or jalapeno chiles|
|¾ cup||Olive oil|
|2 mediums||White onions; cut into 1/2\" slices|
|3 mediums||Carrots; cut into 1/2\" slices|
|1 \N||Garlic head; separated into|
|\N \N||Cloves; but not peeled|
|2 cups||White wine vinegar|
|1 \N||Bay leaf|
|½ teaspoon||Dried oregano; crumbled|
|3 \N||Sprigs Fresh marjoram; leaves only, finely chopped|
|3 \N||Sprigs Fresh thyme; leaves only, finely chopped|
Wash the chiles, leaving the stems intact. Cut a very shallow cross in the tip of each so that the vinegar can penetrate. In a large deep skillet, preferably cast-iron, heat the olive oil over high heat until it is smoking. Reduce the heat to medium and throw in the chiles, onions, carrots, and garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes, turning the vegetables over occasionally. Add the vinegar, water, salt, and all the herbs, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes more. Transfer the vegetables to a very clean crock or deep bowl and pour the vinegar mixture over them. Cool to room temperature, then cover tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 week. (If desired, sterilize 6 pint jars according to the manufacturers instructions, fill and seal them for longer keeping.) This recipe yields 6 pints.
