pickled jalapenos [moved from General Topics]

where to buy pickled jalapenos in the "greater Lexington area"?

Amazon always has a large selection, but the shipping costs are HUGE in grocery

  1. I don't know your area at all, but I buy mine in a small Mexican market, if you have one near you. You can make them also. Quick pickled or heat pickled, depending upon what you want them for. I quick pickled some just last night for banh mi.

    1. I am assuming you are looking for whole peppers, since sliced ones can be picked up in your grocery's "ethnic" section with the Ortega and Old El Paso goods. Goya sells the whole peppers, which you may or may not find in your regular grocery store.

      I thought you meant Lexington, KY. Lexington, MA??? You certainly have Mexican grocery stores in the area- just Google for them. Also, I can find these peppers at Stop and Shop in CT, so try looking there or at Whole Foods or Star Market first.

      1. No Walmarts around? They'll certainly have it, plus fresh ones too (which are better anyway).
