Author Notes: A few tips for these pickles:
-Use a good quality vinegar. Don’t use the bulk white kind that kills your bathroom mold.
-You can liven up the vinegar with anything you like. Go wild.
-Once the vinegar hits the jalapeños, their color will shift from a beautiful vibrant green to a dulled brownish green. Don’t panic.
-Like many things in the kitchen, jalapeño pickles are always better the next day. - Phyllis Grant
