Jalapeños at Villa Market!

Post by Homer » Sun Aug 20, 2017 11:30 am

Hey Yanks, get 'em while they're hot. Can't remember the last time I saw them on the shelf. Four oz (113g) cans of nacho sliced from Casa Fiesta at 84b. They also have 2 other types of peppers from Casa Fiesta.

Forgot to get the GPS coordinates. Aisle 4, to the right of the vinegars and above the Vlasic pickles.

Makro Hua Hin had them yesterday. Unfortunately they don't store well.

Huh? They're pickled aren't they? They pretty much last forever so long as they're kept in the fridge. I got mine from Villa Market about 6 months ago and they still seem fine...

Most Americans wouldn't recognise a fresh japaleno (or real cheese for that matter).
I would not want a raw unpickled pepper in my burger, dog, nachos, etc.
I'll try to get to Market Village before they're gone.

Villa Market, even! :)
And I wouldn't worry too much; as I said I bought mine there about 6 months ago so I'm guessing they've been there the whole time (though I suppose it's possible then and now are the only two times they've been available and there was a lack of supply in between).

I think I've also seen them in Gourmet Supermarket but can't be 100% sure.

"most"? every American that I know, and that's a lot, knows what real cheese and jalapenos are. in the 1950's that may have been true. until I went to france in '61, I'd never tasted real cheese. that was a revelation.

Actually, 404 has a point. "Most" Americans eat in fine dining establishments like Subway, Mc Donalds, Pizza Hut, etc. None of which serve real Jalapenos nor real Cheese. Even most TexMex places have switched to pickled peppers, sadly.

Yes my point is that the great unwashed in any country exist on fast and/or junk food. So pIckled peppers all the way. Most Americans have not travelled outside the USA and you have not met them.

Anyway, off topic, plus I like pickled peppers. :D

Thanks, I would have been wandering the MV isles like a plum!

i ran out of jalepenos months ago. I scan that aisle every few weeks for new stuff and jalepenos. Finally found some.

Very few restaurants where I've lived used fresh jalepenos, and then only a slice as a garnish. Several reasons why. It's far faster to open a can then to remove the seeds and ribs from a jalepeno. Cutting hot peppers puts you at risk for a squirt of capsaicin in the eyeball or transferring some from your hands to your eyes, so gloves and goggles are either a good idea or required by your workman's comp insurance. They have to be prepared on a dedicated surface to prevent capsaicin transfer to other foods. Most forms of Mexican food I've had benefit from a little added acid, either in the form of lime - or vinegar from the jalepenos.

You're correct about the hazards of capsaicin. When I grew up we understood the problem and didn't do stupid things like touch our eyes before washing our hands. Besides, restaurant employees are required to use gloves in the US when touching food. I've never seen one spit, but I guess anything is possible.

For me, all I taste when eating the pickled ones is the pickle part. Absolutely no Jalapeno flavor to them. The smell of the vinegar puts me off as well.
