Black Bean & Squash Veggie Burgers

We always have people with a variety of eating preferences & palates attending our BBQ's. In response, I've always had fun experimenting with flavors and making new burgers for our get-togethers. This time I want to share one that was tried and tested with our family recently and is sure to be a hit at your summer BBQ's. This soy-free veggie burger is packed with flavor, that plays off the herby cilantro and spicy BBQ sauce, topped with an avocado slice on a sesame seed bun.

How to Tuesday - Pickled Jalapeño Peppers

"Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. 
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. 
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. 
Where's the peck of pickled peppers that Peter Piper picked?"

I remember trying to say this tongue- twister as fast as I could as a kid, and I always wondered what a 'peck of pickled peppers' was. I knew what pickled peppers were but what was a peck? I mean Mad Martigan used it to describe Willow in the movie, so it must mean a small something...right?
Well after a little research, it seems like Mr. Piper really liked pickled peppers because a peck is equal to roughly 16 pints! That's 16 pints of pickled peppers that he put away!
This recipe is only for 2 pints but if you have a hankering as bad as Peter I'm sure you can multiply the recipe!

Here's my recipe for Spicy Pickled Jalapeños:

Pickled Jalapeños

Yields: 2 pints

2 lbs of Sliced Jalapeños*
1 1/2 cups White Wine Vinegar
1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
2 TBLPs Sugar
1 Tsp Salt (Iodine free)
1/2 Tsp Turmeric

*You can use Green or Red Jalapeños, or any other spicy pepper.

1. Slice the jalapeños about 1/4" thick.

2. Heat the vinegar mixture on the stove.
3. Add the garlic, sugar, salt, and turmeric to the vinegar mixture and stir well.

4. When the vinegar starts boiling add the sliced jalapeños. Cook for 3-5 minutes.

5. As soon as they start to turn olive green, take the pot off the heat.
 *If you are using Red Jalapeños, cook them till they turn bright red and aren't too soft, this will be less time than the Green ones.

6. Spoon the peppers into 2 sterilized glass jars. Then ladle the vinegar mixture into the jars, leaving 1/2" of headspace.

 Once they've cooled the peppers are ready to eat, to preserve you can place them in the fridge or start the canning process.
