Refrigerator Marinated Hot Peppers

Here's a fun, easy recipe if you have some Hungarian Wax peppers to use up. I have a small garden and usually only plant one or two plants of each type of pepper, so I had four ready to pick today. Four peppers, carefully stacked, will make a 4oz jar. This vinegar/water ratio recipe will fill a pint jar if you have more peppers. Please note that while these are made in a canning jar with a new lid, they must be refrigerated because they are not processed, just marinated.
Slice the peppers about 1/4" thick. I remove most of the seeds, and some of the membrane, if you like things hotter-leave 'em in. I suggest using a small clove of garlic, you will notice the flavor.
The hardest part of this recipe is having to wait 6-8 weeks before you can eat them... But here's the best part, if you make them soon, you will have some killer peppers for opening day of Football Season!

Refrigerator Marinated Peppers
Sterilize jars.
Wash and cut peppers, peel garlic, pack in jar.

1 cup white vinegar
1/5 cup water (just estimate as best you can)
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
3 tsp sugar
Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for five minutes.

Pour over peppers, cover all peppers with liquid, release air bubbles with butter knife or wooden skewer.
Place a new flat canning top on the jar (no band). Let jar cool naturally. Screw the ring on.
Place in fridge for 6-8 weeks and use within 6 months.

  1. Hi Happier Than a Pig In Mud! I just love this name for your blog....too cute!!

    The peppers sound good. I bet they are good on a pizza or sub sandwich.


  2. What a great idea for too many peppers. I have too many anaheim, but I am sure this would work for them too. I am printing this off right now. I would love them in salads.

  3. Sounds yummy! Our pepper plants have all died, so I'll not be pickling any this year. By the way, I love your cutting board!

  5. Okay, where was this last week when I harvested about 4 of my hungarian hot peppers!

  6. I love the title :-)....
    Love the spicy and hot condiments.

  7. I canned my banana/Hungarian peppers last year and did not like the texture at all. I will be doing this next week as I have about 20 small ones on the plants right now. How long will they last in the refrigerator? I would like to do 3 -4 jars to make it through to next summer.

  8. We love banana peppers on salads and burgers. This recipe looks easy enough for me--I'm definitely trying it! Linda

  9. Hello! The original recipe said to use them within 6 months. They don't last too long, they're great on a cracker with cheddar cheese!
    Have fun!

  10. My hubby just put up 12 quarts of pickled banana peppers.....I'll be he would love this recipe, too!! Your zucchini relish looked wonderful, too!

Zinnias are my favorite summer flower!

  13. These would kill me! They look great though. I am trying your relish this week though.

    I was wondering if you had a recipe for canning roasted red peppers. I would love to can some this year since I have the perfect pepper plant for it. Love using them in sauces. I thought I would come to my reliable source first though before searching the web.

  14. Hi Maggie! I haven't tried canning roasted peppers yet, as a matter of fact, I just roasted my first peppers two weeks ago on the grill!
    I do recommend this site for anything chile/pepper related...
