Pickled Peppers?

Post  CapeCoddess on 8/30/2015, 12:23 pm

Anyone have a recipe for refrigerator pickled peppers?  I harvest only two or three pepperoncinis every few days and would like to open the refrigerator and have a nice brine to drop them into.  

Or

If you have a way of preserving them until there's a big enough batch to can I'd like to hear that also please.

CC, I have a refrigerator pickle recipe for hot chilies so it should be fine with whatever kind you have.

Makes one quart.  

4 cups jalapenos
2 3/4 cups distilled white vinegar plus more if needed
1 teaspoon pickling salt
1/4 + or - cup evoo

Cut a slit in each chili

heat vinegar to almost boiling
pour  over chilies, cap with 2 piece lid but not tight and let stand for 1 to 2 weeks at room temp.

Pour off vinegar and replace with new to about 3/4 full, add salt and top with evoo
Store in frig for up to three months.

CC, a couple years ago a few members were talking about pepper vinegar: put a slit in hot peppers and put them in a jar of white vinegar. After a few weeks, a TBS of pepper vinegar added to soup, stew, or whatever, adds a nice zing.

I make mine in a quart canning jar, and leave it on the counter for months. Surplus hot peppers go into the freezer whole, until it's time to make a new batch.

Thanks for the recipe, John. It's the simplest I've seen yet and will use it once I have enough peppers.

So Boffer, are you thinking I could leave a jar of vinegar out and drop the peppers in as I harvest them until I have enough to can them up?
When you put them in the freezer until you have enough? Doesn't freezing them ruin the crunch of the final product?

Anytime CC. I agree with boffer, this spring I picked two quarts of dill and poured white vinegar to fill the two jars. They are still on the kitchen window sill and sometime next month I will pour the dilled vinegar into a bottle and use it for making dill vinaigrette, use it on potato salad, tuna salad and so on.It is really good.

While reading the PNW thread, Marc got me thinking about banana peppers.  I had fantastic luck with banana peppers last year but didn't grow them this year.  

I'm having a hard time getting enough pepperoncini peppers to pickle.  I wonder...
thinking
Do you think that if I pickled banana peppers with pepperoncini peppers  that the banana peppers will take on a little of the heat of the pepperoncino?  It sure would look pretty.

CC, no one has answered your question of combining the peppers, so give it a try anyway. Just do a small quantity.  I'd hate for you do too much, not like them and then be stuck with them.

I have  done some small jars of pickled radishes.  If I do not like them then I will toss them all I will have lost is the time as I used my own radishes as I had too many.

Great idea! I could put together a pint of mixed peppers and see how it goes.
Thanks!

I did it! I was able to harvest 24 pepperoncini peppers this morning and that made a pint of pickled peppers.
This is the link to the recipe I used.
