QUICK TIP: Turn Leftover Pickled Jalapeno Juice into a Tasty New Condiment
make salsa a gallon at a time, so I typically need a full can of
jalapeno peppers as one of the ingredients. A can of pickled
jalapenos usually includes some carrots and onions, so I dice up all
of these solids (in the Mexican aisle of the market this condiment is
called escabeche). After removing the solids, there is quite a bit of
juice left behind. I add a portion of this juice to the salsa because
it adds some zip. And in an effort to be thrifty, I save the rest of
the juice. I put it in a clean Mexican beer bottle (for effect) and
use a shaker top that I removed off of an old vinegar bottle.
plastic shaker top fits into a standard beer bottle opening perfectly
and it allows you to shake out just the amount you prefer. Use this
jalapeno juice in place of a hot sauce. Having had the additional
veggies in it, this juice is a bit more flavorful than just plain
jalapeno juice. It adds a good zip to your dish.
