The recipe for Jalapeño pickles is almost the same as this one, only the cooking time will take few more minutes because the Jalapeños are thicker that Habaneros.

Servings 7


  • 20 habanero peppers about 6 ounces
  • 2 cups of carrots peeled and cut into rounds (about 10 ounces)
  • 10 green onions or 1 ½ white onion cut in quarters
  • 2 cups of cauliflower florets. about 8 ounces
  • 10 garlic cloves peeled
  • cup olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of a mild vinegar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 bay leaves
  • ½ teaspoon of Mexican oregano
  • teaspoon thyme
  • teaspoon marjoram
  • 1 ½ tablespoon of se salt
  • ½ teaspoon of crushed black peppercorns
  • 6 Allspice berries crushed


  • Have all your ingredients ready.
  • First cut a small incision on the side of peppers using a paring knife to avoid having bursting peppers in the middle of the cooking process.
  • Heat the oil in an non aluminum pot in a low flame.
  • Add the Carrots, peppers, cauliflower, green onions and garlic. If using more vegetables add now. Cook stirring frequently for about 7 minutes. Habanero’s skins are tender and cook fast.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
  • Place in glass jars and keep refrigerated. They last for about 2 months. Or if you prefer to use a canning method then they will last for a year or more.


The Habanero peppers are one of the hottest peppers, but by preparing them this way their spiciness will mellow after a few days.
