If you're looking to elevate your favorite dishes with a bit of heat, look no further than Trader Joe's new Pickled Fermented Jalapeño Slices.
Trader Joe's Pickled Fermented Jalapeño Slices starts with fresh jalapeños, which are then sliced, salted, and left to ferment for three days. After the fermentation process, the jalapeños slices are brined in vinegar, jarred, and pasteurized. As Trader Joe's explains, the resulting "salty, vinegary profile pairs profoundly with the spiciness of jalapeño chilis."
As far as pairings go, Trader Joe's suggests using the Pickled Fermented Jalapeño Slices to give its Handsome Cut Fries a unique umami flavor, or adding a handful of the jalapeños slices to its Organic Jalapeño Limeade for some added heat. You could even sprinkle them on top of Trader Joe's Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Cheese Pizza.
