Comments on Escabeche (Pickled Vegetables)
Does anyone know if I can ferment this for a few days before refrigeration?
Sounds good except for the jalapenos. Just how hot is this?v I can take some hot spice but not a lot. Advise. Don't want to make it if I can't eat it.
Jalapenos are not too hot if you remove the seeds. You can still make this without the jalapenos. Try it and see.
