Trader Joe’s Hot & Sweet Jalapenos 12 oz (Pack of 3)
Most people know the famous tongue twister where Peter Piper picks a peck of pickled peppers. Well, thanks to a palatable new pepper offering, we’ve decided to reword it. “Trader Joe’s picked a peck of Hot & Sweet Jalapeños…” Sounds rather catchy, we think. The developers of our Hot & Sweet Jalapeños originally came upon a jar of candied jalapeños in Kansas City, Missouri. The concept piqued their interest but the peppers were just a little too sweet. So, for this product they concocted the perfect balance of sweetness to complement—but not overpower—the heat of the jalapeños. And, yes, these are spicy; they’ll certainly pack the punch you’d expect from the small but mighty jalapeño. Grown in Mexico and Canada, the sliced jalapeños are pickled in a concoction of sugar, vinegar, salt, jalapeño puree, garlic, and a whole red chili pepper. The final result? A palatable, perfectly pickled—and sweet—pepper. Perplexed about how to put our Hot & Sweet Jalapeños to use? Pop ‘em in your mouth like candy. Top a heaping plate of nachos with several slices. Spice up a hamburger or grilled cheese. Add to guacamole. Serve with crackers and cream cheese. Place as a pickled accompaniment for charcuterie. And then, when the jalapeños are gone, use the brine for a marinade. The possibilities are plentiful!
