He used to buy a jalapeno dill concoction which was great. But the product police found out about it and directed the company to stop making it. Now what?
He stewed about it for a while and decided to make his own. He buys plain old kosher dills in a huge jar, thus making them quite cheap (always a plus when plotting revenge on the product police). Then he repacks them in smaller jars with some kind of very hot substance. Sometimes he just replaces the brine with the juice off a jar of hot peppers, but that only works if you have a jar of hot peppers.
Here's his latest foray into remedial pickling. He found a can of jalapenos at the ethnic market.
We ended up with pickles just as hot as the ones we used to buy -- and a lot cheaper, especially if you count our labor at ten cents an hour. Take that, product police!!
