One of the things I like about these hot peppers is that they are incredibly versatile. The brine is unseasoned so they work just as well on sandwiches as they do chopped and stirred into homemade salsa.
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.
