Trappey’s brand jalapeno slices are brilliantly crunchy, says oltheimmer. They use a cold brining method that leaves their jalapeno slices as crisp as a good kosher pickle. They’ve got the best pickled okra, too, which also emerges crisp from the same cold brining method.
Trappey’s is available at many local groceries, and at Cajun Grocer.
He’s also heard that Cajun Chef uses cold brining for their jalapenos, but he’s never been able to find the stuff.
