These pickled peppers are a zesty addition to any meal, and the brine also serve as a terrific flavor booster for other dishes (such as the Beef Enchiladas with Ranchera Sauce). All sorts of vegetables, such as mushrooms, green beans, cauliflower, and nopales (cactus leaves), can be combined with the pickles.
Mustard may seem a little unusual in a Mexican recipe, but it is actually quite common in Mexico’s urban areas. Use plain yellow (hot dog) mustard if that’s what you have, or Dijon if you prefer.
With a paring knife, cut two slits on opposite sides of each jalapeño, starting about ½ inch from the stem end and ending about 1 inch from the tapered end.
Heat the oil in a deep non-aluminum saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the jalapeños, onions, carrots, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are softened but not browned, about 10 minutes.
Add the vinegar, water, salt, bay leaves, thyme, marjoram, lime, sugar, mustard, allspice, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, then adjust the heat so the liquid is simmering. Taste and add a little more water if the mixture seems to sharp to you. Remember, though, that it will mellow somewhat as it sits. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and cool to room temperature.
Pack the vegetable and their liquid into clean glass jars and refrigerate. They will keep for up to 6 weeks, as long as they are kept refrigerated and all the vegetables are covered in liquid.
