Pepper, Jalapeno

The jalapeno pepper is probably the best known of the chili peppers.  On the “heat index” of hot peppers, the jalapeno is relatively “mild”.  Jalapeno peppers are about two to three inches in length and are mostly green or with a red blush.  Select jalapeno peppers that are firm and free of bruises, blemishes, and wrinkles.  They will store in the refrigerator for about a week.  However, it is best to use them as soon as possible or process them into Pickled Jalapeno Pepper Slices for future use on sandwiches and pizzas.  See the nutritional chart below.
