How to Make Pickled Banana Peppers

For pickled banana peppers I like to keep the spices to a minimum. Unlike my homemade Pickle Relish, Sweet Pickle Relish and Corn Relish which I like to pack full of flavor, I like to keep the flavor profile of my pickled banana peppers clean and simple. That way the fabulous flavor of the peppers is supported and enhanced rather than drowned out.

This recipe will remind you of your favorite deli-style pickled peppers.

  1. Start by selecting the freshest peppers you can find. Do not use ones that are soft, wrinkly or have dark spots.
  2. Wash and slice the peppers, discarding the seeds.
  3. Place the garlic, bay leaf and peppercorns in the bottom of each jar and then pack in the sliced peppers.
  4. Place the vinegar and water in a small pot along with the salt and sugar and heat until the salt and sugar dissolves.
  5. Pour the hot vinegar over the peppers until the peppers are immersed under the liquid, pressing them down with a butter knife to eliminate air pockets.
  6. Close the lid tightly and let it cool completely at room temperature and then transfer the jar to the fridge. For the best flavor let the jar sit for at least 1-2 weeks before using, occasionally giving the jar a good shake.
  7. For the best flavor let the jar sit for at least 1-2 weeks before using.

Visual Recap:

Slice the peppers, discarding as many seeds as you reasonably can.

Place the garlic, bay leaf and peppercorns in the bottom of a 1 quart (1 liter) glass jar.
