I pickled onions

following a recipe I got of the web. I think it is the same as with Pickles (cucumbers) Use pickling spices, vinegar etc.

Mixed veg chutney/pickle

Paco, I don't know what the pickle you are talking about but if you go to Page 6 on this forum and look up the recipe for mixed veg chutney it could be of interest to you. But be sure to cook the carrots before you put them in as they won't cook in the vinegar. Hope it helps.

1 clove garlic
1 pt. salad oil
1 bay leaf
1 pinch oregano
2 tsp. salt
5 lg. cloves garlic
1 pkg. carrots, sliced
1 lg. onion, chunked
3 dozen fresh jalapeno peppers


Combine 1 clove garlic, oil, bay leaf, oregano and salt. Heat until garlic browns. Add 5 cloves garlic, carrots, onion and jalapenos. Cook a few minutes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until color of pepper changes. Skins will blister a little. Pour off excess oil and add enough vinegar to cover and bring to boil. Pack in sterilized jars and seal.

restrants here also have jalapenos.

Thanks, Terry. I will try that. I've looked all over the web and this sounds the nearest to what I'm wanting.
