If you’ve already eaten up all the pickled peppers in your pantry, but you’re craving some right now, here’s a recipe for pickled peppers that’s ready in 15 minutes flat. They add a bright punch of flavor to tacos, pizza, pasta, and omelettes, or just for snacking on with cheese and crackers.
In the summer, my peppers overflow from the garden… to the point that I sigh when I walk out the door asking myself, “What am I going to do with all these peppers?” On that note, growing peppers from seed is so easy. I love saving my seeds from my best plants and every year I get better and better peppers!!
Did you know that peppers in your diet will boost your health and even help you to lose weight? The capsaicin in the peppers keeps immature fat cells from developing into full fledged ones as well as boosting metabolism. So just think, if you eat them at least once a day, you get to eat more… or lose more, if you don’t eat more!
One of my favorite things to do is to keep these pickled peppers on hand for one of my all-time favorite sandwiches!
Just a quick note: if you like goat cheese, it’s delicious on sandwiches, and pizzas combined with these amazing peppers.
