How to Preserve Jalapeno Peppers

Preserving Jalapeno Peppers In Olive Oil

Clean your jalapeno peppers thoroughly and dry. Roast the jalapenos in a broiler or on a grill over medium heat until the skins are bubbly and blackened. Be sure not to overcook. Skin the peppers and cut the flesh into thick strips.

For more information on roasting jalapeno peppers, view this page.

Remove seeds if desired, but keeping the innards of the jalapeno peppers will retain much of the heat. Add the pepper strips to a cleaned jar. Pour in enough olive oil to cover, and cover with a tightened lid. Be sure to make airtight. Refrigerate immediately.

This method of preservations should keep your chili peppers for a week or longer.
