Canned sweet & spicy jalapeños

I make these once a month to feed my addiction and I put them on everything!

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups of distilled vinegar
  • 2 1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbs of honey
  • 20 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of caraway seeds
  • 1 1/4 lbs of jalapeños

Directions

  • Get a medium sized pot and put all ingredients in except the jalapeños
  • Clean the jalapeños and begin slicing. First cut off the top and use the rest of the jalapeño. If there are a lot of seeds remove excess, but don't pay much attention
  • About half way through slicing, turn the brine on to high heat and it should be boiling  by the time you finish slicing the jalapeños
  • Once boiling pour jalapeños in and turn heat off
  • Let jalapeños sit in brine for 2-5 minutes depending on what spice level you like

Note: Put them on everything

The Deconstructed Burger & Fries

The other day I got home from work and was planning on eating my leftover burger. This burger was ember grilled which gave it that nice campfire taste, I was excited from what I had experienced the night before. When I opened the take home box the burger did not look as it did before after spending the night in the fridge. I decided to spark it up with ingredients that I already had in my kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 a left over beef burger patty  diced (I ate the remaining bun while I was cooking)
  • 2 red potatoes cubed
  • 1/4 sweet onion chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • dash of salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

Garnish (optional if you want it more burger like

  • 1/2 tablespoon whole seed Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon Harissa ketchup
  • Vinaigrette
  • 3 springmix leafs
  • 1 tablespoon of micro planed white cheddar cheese

Directions

  • Start medium size pan on medium heat with olive oil
  • Toss in and sauté potatoes and onions in the pan until potatoes are translucent then toss in garlic
  • Once all ingredients reach a perfect golden (or preferred cook) throw in the leftover burger patty, this way the patty isn't overcooked it is just being heated.
  • Serve on plate with garnishes

Note: add more olive oil if needed
