Simple recipe, my first pickled peppers. They are great! Gave two jars to my Mom as a birthday gift (she loves peppers) and she loved them. FYI I used a mix of Banana and Hungarian cut into rings.
Made these yesterday as you can see the date on top of the cap! Made them with almost the same ingredients, I used Tabasco Peppers, 1 per jar instead of pepper flakes. I also used 1 teaspoon of mustard seed and 1 teaspoon of dries dill instead of fresh. I also used 6 cloves of garlic instead of 2. I cut the garlic into 4 pieces of each clove.You do not need to put these in a hot water bath, the hot brine will seal the caps and your peppers will be crispy not mushy or soft.I will be posting mine very soon with these pictures. Thanks for posting!
A good, simple, tasty recipe. I've used it on all kinds of peppers and okra, too. The okra was good with and without the dried red pepper. It's become my favorite brine for pickling veggies.
