Jamaican Jerk Pickle Chips
These spicy pickles get big flavor from cinnamon and allspice.
Before using pickling cucumbers, thoroughly scrub them with a soft vegetable brush in plenty of cold running water. Remove stems and blossoms; slice off blossom ends. Use a mandoline to create perfectly even cucumber slices. If pickling cucumbers are not available, use regular garden cucumbers. Do not use waxed cucumbers sold in supermarkets; these are typically used for salads and slicing.
Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
