 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Clove garlic
    1                    Sprig Mexican Oregano
                         Vinegar
                         Jalapeno Peppers
 
   Sterilize pint or half pint canning jars.  Into each
   jar, place a clove of garlic (optional), and a sprig
   of Mexican oregano (also optional, but highly
   recommended).
   
   Pack the washed peppers into the jars.  For a hotter
   product, prick each pepper a couple of times with a
   fork (I don't know why, but it seems to work).
   
   Fill the jars with boiling vinegar to cover the
   peppers well.  Cap. My grandmother never processed
   these, just stuck them on the shelf for a couple of
   months to marinate.  On the rare occasions when I've
   made 'em, I keep the jars under refrigeration, just to
   be sure.
   
   Please note I am NOT a canning/preserving expert --
   have done VERY little of this (got my fill of it as a
   kid).  I've only made these a couple of times as an
   adult, and they turned out fine, but surely there are
   more expert opinions out there....
