As a notorious sweet pepper pickler I decided this year to experiment with hot chilies. A big amount of garlic and delicate, sweetened vinegar proved a perfect pairing for the moderately hot Turkish variety called "aci sivri".
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Now, did he pick a peck and then pickle them? A blend of sweet and hot peppers, cauliflower, carrots and onions make these pickled peppers a bit different.
I love it when things are this easy. 5 cups of vinegar, one cup of water, a half-cup of sugar, a variety of spices and a pile of lovely-looking vegetables. I have carrots, jalapenos, garlic, onion, radishes, chives, bell pepper and lemon.
