I don’t know about you, but this year the pepper harvest was very good in my vegetable patch. In order to be able to eat spicy, and season my dishes throughout the year, I put on my kitchen apron to make jars with my peppers like Pickles!

The Pickles: what are they?

Literally, “pickles” means “pickles” in English, but this word refers to the method of preservation, rather than the product itself. This therefore means preserving fruits or vegetables in alcohol, vinegar or oil. You can turn almost any fruit and vegetable into pickles. Gherkin, onion, cucumber, cauliflower, beetroot, carrot, green bean, turnip, pepper, chilli… to accompany any herb of your choice and especially according to your tastes!

The recipe for pickles of peppers!

Storing peppers, combining flavor and spiciness with pickles, is easy, practical and quick. In addition to keeping whole peppers untainted, storing in oil helps the color and smooth skin of the pepper shine through. Discover my recipe for peppers in olive oil.

Ingredients : peppers – 1 teaspoon coarse salt – a few pepper seeds (for this recipe I used Sichuan pepper) – 1 bottle of spirit vinegar – 1 bottle of olive oil – 1 storage jar hermetic.

1.) Wash the peppers, then dry them with a clean kitchen towel.

2.) Score the entire length of the pepper, without removing the seeds.

3.) In a salad bowl, put the peppers, salt and some pepper seeds. Cover with vinegar and leave to macerate for 48 hours.

4.) Remove the peppers from the vinegar, and arrange them in the jar. Cover them with olive oil. Store in a cool, dry place away from light. Wait a month before consuming them.

My little tips:

  • I opted for Sichuan pepper, for its subtle, slightly woody scent and its warm and spicy notes, it goes wonderfully with peppers.
  • When the peppers are eaten, you can use the olive oil from the jar to brush the meat, for example, before grilling it.
