Yum yum yum! This is my first time pickling peppers and what's not to love?! Very simple to make. The hardest part is letting them sit in the fridge overnight. I made a slight change to the recipe - I used only 1/4 c of sugar instead of 1/3 c and that was plenty sweet for my tastes. I also found it easier to cut the peppers in quarters instead of halves. The liquid level was a little low once poured into the jar. The peppers weren't completely covered, but that was fine because I just ate a couple peppers the next day and that solved the problem. :) I later served these on a meat and cheese tray. Thanks for the great recipe Love2C0ok! Read More

These are what they claim to be "great plain or on a sandwich". They were also very easy to make. The whole family enjoyed them. I only used half the sugar and may cut it down even more the next time as even at half I thought they were a bit too sweet. I also added two hot peppers but that had very little effect. We did like the outcome and I'll keep some on hand in the fridge for snacks and quick lunches. Thank you Love2c0ok for the recipe. Read More

I love the peppers at a popular sub shop but could not convince them to sell them to me. These were even better because they were fresh and crisper! Great flavor. I didn't have a jar so I just put them in a glass bowl with a sealed rubber lid. After 2 days they were fantastic. Thanks for posting! Read More

Pickled peppers are a feature in my favorite grinder sandwich. This recipe was step one in recreating that sandwich. Thanks! Read More

Removed the skins used 1/4 cup sugar and regular iodized salt. In general remember to use vinegar with a minimum of 5 % acidity. Store in refrigerator. Great on hot dogs in lieu of sauerkraut. Read More
