#1587405 What do you guys do with unripe pods?

Posted by Masher on 14 October 2018 - 06:17 PM

My go to pickling pepper brine. Makes 2 pints

1.75 cups apple cider vin
2.25 filtered water
2 Tbls pickling salt.

Heat to low boil. Fill pepper filled jars to rim. Keep pressing down and add a few more peppers keeping everything under brine.
Cap and shake tilt roll to get air out of peppers. Remove cap and add more peppers and brine to rim. Repeat until jar is maxed out with brine and peppers.

Multiple above ingredients for larger batches.

Wash peppers trim stem.
Make slit in top and bottom of pepper to let in brine.
Fill clean jars. Add garlic cloves to your liking.

I use pickle crisp product when pickling. Directions on label.

Heres two half gallons I just did minutes ago.
Peppers will cook in brine and change color as it cools.


You can water bath process 10mins if desired.

I do not process..the hot liquid once cooled creates a vacuum. Salt and vin content make is shell safe. I refrigerate after opening.

My current jar I'm eating is 3 yrs old.

Excellent results everyone.

I have a pinched nerve in shoulder for 4 weeks now.

Not much being harvested because of it.

Lots of pods like everyone else even after almost killing them at plant out.

Hoping to get them all picked this week.

The vinegar is to kill any bacteria before freezing.

Peter Stanley has a vid showing the process.

Just a guess of course.

About 15 lbs of pepperoncinis.

Couldnt pick all last week so a mess load for overripes yesterday.

I pickle these and they need to be green.

Going to try a mash with the reds and see if I can get vin sauce similar to tabasco.

The Thunder mountain Longhorn.

What are its uses or what do you do with them?

Are they crunchy eating pepper? Ever tried pickling?
