Reva Foods Mango Habenero Sauce


Quick Spicy Pickles

6-8 mini cucumbers -sliced
2 sliced jalapeños
1 sliced habanero 
2 cups of white vinegar

2 tablespoons salt (I used garlic salt because why wouldn’t I)
4 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp Ball Canning mixed pickling spice


How to make Pulled Pork Sliders with Homemade Spicy Pickles:

  1. Light PBC according to instructions.
  2. Rub pork butt generously with PBC All-Purpose Rub.
  3. Cook pork butt until the internal temperature gets to around 165°.
  4. Pack cucumbers into a  jar (regular and wide-mouth Mason-type, threaded, home-canning jars with self-sealing lids are the best choice) with jalapeños, habanero, garlic, and pickling spice. 
  5. In a small saucepan add vinegar, sugar, and salt. Bring to a low boil and cook until sugar dissolves. 
  6. Pour brine into each jar until cucumbers are covered. Cool, cover and store in the refrigerator. Pickles will be ready in 1-2 hours. 
  7. Wrap pork butt with foil and cook until the internal temperature reaches 200-205°.
  8. Place the pulled pork on Hawaiian rolls and top with spicy pickles and your favorite bbq sauce.
