preserving some Jalapenos

bigjimbray | Jun 10, 2007 11:47 AM

I was at the market and ran across some of the biggest Jalapenos I have seen, some
of these were at least5-6 inches long and as big as a half-dollar around. I bought 2lbs.
of them, and I was thinking about canning them, with vinegar,oil water, carrots, garlic
onion. this next door neighbor was over and she is a elderly mexican lady and I asked
her what she does to preserve them and she said that she blisters them on the stove
so she can peel the skin off, then she seeds them and then freezes them maybe
5-6 in a bag. I am not sure but isnt there a way you can blister them on a cookie
sheet in the oven? I would like your input on this because these peppers looks so nice
I don`t want to foul them up. any info would be very thankful.
