Quick Pickled Peppers


Description

Make a batch of quick pickled peppers in no time. This fresh, crunchy, spicy mixture can be customized to accommodate your desired level of heat. Eat them on their own or they make a fantastic addition to salads, sandwiches, soups & pasta.


Scale

Ingredients

Use about 3 pounds of peppers. For my last batch I used:

  • 2 poblano peppers, seeded and diced into about 1” pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced into about 1” pieces
  • 1 orange bell pepper, seeded and diced into about 1” pieces
  • 3 banana peppers, seeded and diced into about 1” pieces
  • 3 cubanelle peppers, seeded and diced into about 1” pieces
  • 2 anaheim peppers, seeded and diced into about 1” pieces
  • 1 serrano pepper, sliced in 1/8″ rings (I left the seeds in the serranos)
  • 2 large jalapeno peppers, halved, seeded and sliced into 1/8” half rings
  • 2 cups rice vinegar, unseasoned
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic

Instructions

Place all the peppers in a large bowl.

For the brine, combine the remaining ingredients in a medium pan and heat over medium until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour brine over peppers and stir to combine.

Cover and chill.  It’s best to at least 12 hours to let the flavors combine.


Notes

If you like it hot, add more serrano or jalapeno peppers.  Use your favorite combination of peppers.
