This year i was hoping to adapt my mango chutney recipe to jalapeno and mango chutney.
I am unable to source them fresh jalapenoes but do have an abundence of pickled ones in the cupboard.
Is it ok to add the pickled ones to a chutney recipe? And will it effect the taste of the final product?

This is only my second time making chutney so im a little unsteady on my feet. Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Hi Linzi,

I would guess that the pickled chillies would contain vinegar (sometimes salt and citric acid too) so all it might do is add a bit more vinegar or acid to the final chutney. You could always give them a good rinse to remove any excess vinegar first. I regularly use pickled chillies for cooking and haven't noticed any change in flavour but that's usually one chilli in a pan of something or other.

Good luck with your chutney.

Yes I'd agree with that, they should be fine, maybe not quite as hot as fresh ones, but they shouldn't be a problem - oh and hello by the way
