Keto Pickled Jalapenos | a sugar free recipe

Share This Recipe

I am a massive jalapeño fan and I had to make a sugar free keto pickled jalapeños recipe. It tastes just the same as the canned variety!

At this time of year (Australian autumn/winter) I have a huge glut of jalapeños and always end up making lots of recipes featuring them. 

This keto pickled jalapeño recipe is a very simple recipe that everyone can easily make.

Jalapeños are a mild chilli with a Scoville unit measure of 2500-5000. With super hot chillies having measures over 1 million Scoville units I would definitely consider them as a mostly mild child. They are a very tasty chilli that can add a little spice to many dishes.

How to make Keto Pickled Jalapeños

Conventional method

With this method I have included a method that includes blistering the skin of the jalapeños first. 

Place all the jalapeños in a large wide saucepan (or work in batches) to blister the skin of the chillies. 

Add remainder of ingredients and cook until soft.

Cool and slice. Store in a sterilised airtight jar in the fridge. 

Alternatively, the keto pickled jalapeños can be sliced before cooking.


Thermomix® Method

Place all sliced jalapeños into the mixer and cook 20 minutes/98℃/reverse/stir.  Increase cooking time if needed.
