Get your gardens ready and be sure to plant plenty of hot and sweet banana peppers. If you don’t plant a garden you can buy a plentiful supply of peppers at any local farmers market. This is an easy wat to preserve hot peppers without canning.
I like hot peppers on pizza, sandwiches, and even in salads. This is a simple brine, and it's so easy to make, for preserving hot and sweet peppers so you can enjoy them all year long.
We especially enjoy finding the hot banana peppers, and cutting them into rings. I pack the peppers and seeds tightly into every jar. Add you garlic and seasoning, then pour in the brine. Top off with olive oil and close the tightly.
In about two weeks you'll be enjoying tasty hot peppers for whatever you choose to put them on, it’s that easy to preserve hot peppers without canning.
Now here is all that you need to make the brine:
· 1/2 white vinegar to 1/2 water (equal amounts) we used 4 cups of each
Now add these ingredients to the jars:
· 1 tsp of salt
· 1/2 tsp. of Oregano or Italian seasoning
· 3 cloves of Garlic, per one jar
· Olive oil (we use light olive oil)
Instructions To Preserve Hot Peppers:
- Boil the brine for 25 minutes, and then let it cool
- While the brine is cooling, cut the hot peppers into rings, about 1/4" or more (Be sure to wear gloves)
- Add the salt and oregano to the bottom of each the jar
- Pack the peppers tight into the canning jars (you can use pint or quart jars)
- While you're packing add cloves of fresh garlic (we added 3 per jar)
- Pour the cool brine into the jars to cover the peppers. Just enough to cover the tops.
- Add the 2 tablespoons of oil on top of the brine
- Seal the jar and give it a few shakes to mix it up well.
- Wait two weeks before using
