These are a delicious substitute for pickles on a relish tray. They also work well added to a lettuce salad. These can also be packed into sterile containers and sealed for later use.

Not bad! GREAT way to use up extra peppers from the garden. I used 1 cup sugar and 1 cup splenda and about 3/4 cup vegetable oil and 1 1/4 cup olive oil. Threw in about 10 cloves of garlic instead of 6 just because. Once the marinade was done I threw the sliced peppers into the pot covered it and let it cool down. I don't like raw peppers so that way they got cooked just so that they were soft but not mushy. There was a lot of extra marinade but it serves as a good salad dressing. Read More

I reduced this recipe down to using only 2 red peppers. It came out beautifully! I love the taste of these peppers and will be sure to make them again very soon! Read More

This is a great recipe I return to time after time. I omit the anchovies (a personal preference) and reduce the amount of oil and sugar slightly (for dietary reasons) but this is a good standard marinated vegetable recipe you can use with other veggies as well. Read More

Nice. I tossed in more garlic and scaled it back to use just one pepper. I didn't have red peppers but used 1/2 a yellow pepper and a small orange pepper. I added a bit more garlic to the mix. Still turned out lovely. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
