Fridge Pickled Peppers

My garden runneth over.
Even after eating two peppers a day, I could barely  make a dent so…
Time for some lazy girl canning!

I combined tips from two recipes and spinkled in a few random alterations to make a delicious jar of pickled banana + jalapeno peppers.  One recipe came from my Pensacola friends Steph + Bruce and the other came from The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking, which has some awesome tips on fridge pickling so check it out!

The typical ratio for a standard up-cycled spaghetti jar of pickled peppers is 1 cup of water to 1 cup of white vinegar. But I was so excited to make them NOW (patience is a virtue I lack) that I decided to use the vinegar I had on hand. My 1 cup of vinegar consisted of 3/4 cup of rice vinegar (aka sushi vinegar) and 1/4 cup of white balsamic vinegar.  Both were pretty fragrant and wound up infusing a ton of flavor into the peppers.

Aside from the bowl-o-peppers, I added a few other flavor-enhancers into the jar: 1 large clove of garlic (minced), 2 tbsp of diced red onion, 2 tsp of dried oregano, 1/4 tsp of dried dill, 1-2 tsp of kosher salt, and a few coriander seeds.  Feel free to mix and match your favorite herbs and spices… and by all means, use up what you have on hand!  The entire process takes about 5-10 minutes to prep and just a few hours of cooling time.
Thinking of trying your hand at fridge pickling?
The steps are easy as 1-2-3 [ 4-5-6 ]
1. Thoroughly clean an old spaghetti sauce jar.
2. Slice peppers or other veggies and fill jar.
3. Bring 1 cup of water + 1 cup vinegar to a boil.
4. Season and reduce to simmer for about a minute.
5. Pour into jar and allow to cool to room temperature.
6. Cover with the lid and relocate to the back of your fridge to marinate.
Dig in!
That’s it! <3
You can dig in after a few hours, the next day, or even a week later!
Just make sure you keep them refrigerated b/c these are fridge-friendly + not pantry-friendly.

Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli

I’ve never heard of fridge pickling! Do they taste different compared to regular pickling?

I bet your peppers would make a mean salsa! Mmm!

cinnamonalicious

MMM yum I love jalapenos!
I never knew that it’s that easy to pickle! you’re a genius! 😀

Jess@HealthyExposures

this is awesome – why have i never thought about pickling peppers before?! (and yes, I do realize there’s that whole peter piper + his pickled peppers thing, I just never really thought about eating pickled peppers…) will be keeping this in mind. what else can you pickle!? lol

Meri

How easy! I should definitely do this while the peppers are abundant 🙂 I make fridge pickles with the baby cukes all the time, yum!

Katy

Haha, I LOVE YOUR OLIVER PICTURE! <3

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

I always thought pickling was so intimidating, but this looks approachable. 🙂

Peppers are my favorite nacho topping – the hotter the better!

Indigo

This is such a good idea! I haaaate wasting food, but I wouldn’t have thought of pickling things myself… I’d just have eaten peppers until my stomach exploded. And omg, that plate is the best thing I’ve ever seen, haha.

Courtney B

This makes me want to learn how to can so badly!! I’d love to have a never ending supply of salsa and yummy pickled peppers 🙂

Gina @ Running to the Kitchen

Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg

Wow– never thought pickling could be so easy! Very cool!

Bonnie

Peppers are right up Mr. A’s alley!!!! He would be so lost without them. Although I am proud that I ate my first pepper in a baked quesadilla yesterday. Go me!

Amanda @ .running with spoons.

Fabulous idea, love! I hate wasting food, so I think this is great. I’ve never done any canning, but I’m a pro at freezing berries and summer fruit 😉

Cara

Allison @ PickyEatingRD

Nachos!!! I am a sucker for melted cheese and a little spicyness!!

Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries

YAYYY for a tomato! I had a garden last summer and the tomatoes were such a let down for me! By the way, I love that plate. Too funny!

Ashley

Oh my gosh I’m DYING for those Crate n Barrel (or are they CB2?) plates! Every time I see them I want to get them!

Lindsay

KT @ KT's Refinishing School

That looks delicious! J loves pickled jalapenos–my cousin’s husband (cousin-in-law?) gave us a shelf-stable jar of them last summer from his garden and it was delicious! Here’s hoping they share their bounty again this year haha 🙂

Do you know how long these will keep in the fridge?

You know I would never ever even dream of doing these things if it wasn’t for your blog. And hence I love you, but I hate you because I am so green and jealous of your garden.

Melissa

owlmazing
