Keeping in mind that hops magnify the heat of peppers I decided to pickle some mild jalapenos in an extra hoppy pale ale to give them some kick and also bring out the citrusy notes of the hot pepper and the coriander!
Beer Pickled Jalapenos
2tsp whole coriander
1tsp whole mustard seed
pinch of whole pepper corns
juice from one lime
1/3 cup golden balsamic
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 cups of beer (I used Knee Deep's Citra Extra Pale Ale)
7 mild jalapenos
-Slice up your jalapenos thinly and set aside in heat proof container
-Add honey, salt, spices, vinegars, lime juice, and 1 cup of the beer to a pot and simmer
-Simmer pickling liquid for about 5 minutes
-Add 1/2 cup of beer and remove from heat for a couple minutes
-Pour liquid over sliced jalapenos and cover container
-You can enjoy them after about 2 hours and they will keep for a couple weeks if properly refrigerated!
Pair your jalapenos with grilled meats, tacos, charcuterie and of course a refreshing beer!
