Pickled Jalapenos (Jalapeno Tursusu)

1 lb fresh jalapenos, washed and sliced
¾ cup vinegar
1 cup water
8-10 cloves of garlic
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp black peppercorns
1-2 bay leaves (optional)

Pack the sliced jalapenos (preferably tight) into clean glass jars along with the garlic, bay leaves and black peppercorns. Leave some space (1 inch) on top. Add salt and sugar on top. Then, fill the jars with vinegar and water up to top. Close the lids tight and shake the jars up for a couple of times so that the salt and sugar will be dissolved and evenly distributed.
Age several weeks at room temperature (preferably in dark) before using or keep refrigerated up to 2 months if you are not planning to use them earlier.
ENJOY
