Pickled Peppers?

Pickled Peppers? Empty 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 have already canned 16 pints of pickled Jalapeno Peppers, and 12 pints of pickled Sweet Banana Peppers, which will be enough to get me through until next year's crop starts coming in.  Will only be using the rest of them fresh, or giving them to neighbors. Still freezing Bell Peppers for winter use in soups, etc., though.

I haven't done any jelly, but a neighbor that I had given a bunch of Jalapeño peppers made some Jalapeño Jelly and gave me a couple jars. It is delicious, and I am thinking I may have to make some. I asked her for the recipe, but haven't gotten it yet.

I planted 6 plants each of Jalapeño, Sweet Banana, and Bell peppers, so we have more peppers than you can imagine!

Oh my gosh!  You have to be swimming in peppers!  Jalapeños produce so many peppers!!!  I have some frozen from last season, but think I need to pickle this year’s harvest.  And make jelly!

Swimming in peppers is a good description!  We will be pickling banana peppers tonight, and we have bell peppers freezing on trays now so we can put them in bags. Had stuffed bell peppers for dinner, too. Not going to can any more Jalapeños though - I have more than enough already canned to get me through until next year's crop. This afternoon I made 2 dozen Jalapeños Poppers, which will get me through about 4 days.  Very Happy Fortunately, we have a number of friends that love Jalapeños as much as I do, so none of them will go to waste.
