In Oaxacan marketplaces there are always plastic bags full of freshly pickled jalapeños—very good, but the ones that diligent cooks usually prefer to make at home are fantastic. It’s a good way to preserve a bumper crop of jalapeños. Whenever my recipes call for pickled jalapeños, the canned variety will do but the homemade version will transform the dish.
