Total time
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 10-12
  • 2½ lbs mini peppers
  • 6-9 garlic cloves
  • 1½ Tablespoons pickling spice, optional
  • 4½ cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • ½ cup oil, optional
  • 2½ Tablespoons salt
  1. Wash the peppers.
  2. You can also cut off the tops and take out the seeds if you'd like.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the peppers and blanch for about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, take the peppers out of the boiling water.
  4. Use 3 clean jars (1 quart each), and add 2-3 peeled garlic cloves and ½ Tablespoon of pickling spice to each jar.
  5. Add the peppers to each jar.
  6. In a medium saucepan, bring the marinade ingredients to a boil.
  7. Pour the marinade over the peppers. Seal each jar.
  8. (If you want to store them for a longer period of time, sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water and them put the filled and sealed jars into a water bath for about 15 minutes.)
  9. Let it marinate for at least a few days before opening.
