Anyway to save my pickled Bishop Crowns?

We did our first batch of pickled peppers a couple months ago. Today I finally decided to open a jar and give them a test. Turns out that they taste like nothing but vinegar. It was extremely hard to put down and had zero flavour otherwise. We have used the same recipe for beets and they turned out fantastic. I have 6 pint jars of the peppers. I'm wondering if there is anything one could do to them as I open each jar without causing it to spoil real fast. Definitely going to find a better recipe for next year.
You might want to take test one jar and dump the vinegar then replace with water and put em in the fridge for a couple days or a week. The water will leech some of the vinegar out. If they are nicely crisp and good texturally then they'll stay that way in the water and after the soak they might not be so unpalatable w vinegar.
I'd also recommend saving that vinegar you pour off - it's great splashed onto fries/salad dressings/sauteed greens of all kinds.

even if all you made was pepper infused vinegar it's not a loss. there are lots of ways to use it
i personally prefer to use pepper infused vinegar's in marinades, or just a drizzle on rice
but the vinegar tasting peppers can probably still be used in sauces as well (with less and possibly no added vinegar)

Pickled peppers and a TBLS of that vinegar are great in bloody mary's
