    Default In Search Of....Homemade Texas Tornados

    Has anyone ever tried pickling and canning jalapenos? I picked up a jar of D.L. Jardine's Texas Tornados recently at the Home Good store and hubby and I both fell in love with them. They're sliced jalapenos, and they're both sweet and hot. Very good on hamburgers! Anyway, I went back to pick up some more and they didn't have any and it's not an item they routinely stock. I found a source online, but the shipping jacked the price up to about $10 a jar. So I was thinking I should be able to make this at home. It's kind of like a sweet pickle but it's hot from the jalapeno. Maybe I could just use a recipe for sweet pickles but substitute jalapenos for the cucumbers? Has anyone ever tried this? Do you have a good (tried and true) recipe for sweet pickles that you would recommend using for this?

    del dixie brand of "jalapeno bread and butter pickles" would be a good, cheap substitute.

    I'll have to look for those. I love bread and butter pickles, and the addition of the jalapeno would only kick it up a notch for me! Thanks!!

    I was wondering if you could let me know where you normally find these? I'm not having much luck yet.

    Hubby and I decided today that we are going to try canning some sweet pickled jalapenos. Should be fun!

    I know this is an old thread, but in case anyone else is wondering, I'll throw in an opinion.

    IMO, I don't see why you couldn't do as you said yourself, just sub jalapenos or other hot peppers for the cucumbers in a sweet pickle recipe.

    You could also make hot sweet pickles by adding a couple of dried hot peppers per quart of sweet pickles. Or a teaspoon or to taste of hot pepper flakes per quart.

    Interesting idea. I might have to try that myself sometime. If anyone does give it a try, post here to let us all know how they turned out.
