Pickled Hot Pepper Rings

Picture of Pickled Hot Pepper Rings
This is a simple canning recipe for some tasty hot pepper rings.  This works with most hot peppers, and is an easy and affordable way to preserve an abundance of peppers.

I love using these on sandwiches, pizzas, wraps or even chopped up and mixed with some cream cheese on a morning bagel.

Occasionally I'll just eat them right out of the jar, good for clearing out the sinuses...

Step 1: Gather

I used about a pound of mixed peppers, some hot banana, some long hots, and whatever else was out in the garden.

You will need:

1 lb of hot peppers
3 cups of white vinegar
2 cups of water
3 cloves of garlic
3 teaspoons of picking salt (any non-iodized salt)

3 pint jars with lids and rings
Canning rack or canning basket
Jar Lifter
Rubber gloves

Cutting board
Measuring cup
Large pot (enough room for jars to be covered by 1" boiling water)

Step 2: Sterilize jars

Run your jars in the dishwasher or wash by hand with hot water and antibacterial soap to sterilize.

Place your canning rack the large pot (if you don't have a basket) and fill with enough to cover the pint jars once they are added.

Put pot on High heat and bring to a boil

Put the empty jars and rings in the large pot while the water heats to keep them hot.

Step 3: Make the pickling liquid

Measure 3 cups of vinegar and 2 cups of water into the small sauce pot and put on medium heat.

Peel and smash the garlic cloves and toss them in the vinegar mixture.

Heat the mix to boiling.

Step 4: Pepper time

Equip your gloves and get to cutting!

Trim the stems off and slice peppers into rings.  I cut somewhere between 1/4" and 1/2"

You can mix different types of peppers or just do one type at a time.

You can keep all the seeds or do your best to shake them out.

They are your peppers, make them how YOU like them!

Worked well. But now I want to open them and eat the peppers.

Do they need to sit for any amout of time before you eat them?
