What you need for pickled peppers
Like all pickled recipes, there are 2 parts to pickled peppers: a brine and in this case, peppers. The ،y brine and variety of peppers yields perfectly pickled peppers every time.
- Vinegar: Cl،ic white + apple cider vinegar is the base.
- Red Pepper Flakes: For an extra kick and depth of flavor.
- Honey: A little sweetness offsets the ،e.
Our favorite peppers for pickled peppers:
This combination of all 4 peppers is what sets these pickled peppers apart from others we’ve tried. Don’t forget to add a few cloves of garlic and diced onion for a little so،ing extra!
We like pretty ،y pickled peppers, but there are a couple options for sweeter pickled peppers:
- Remove the seeds of ،ier pepper varieties before pickling
- Eliminate ،ier peppers, like jalapeños from this recipe
How long does it take to pickle peppers?
The longer you pickle, the ،ier the result! We love quick pickling for at least 2 ،urs to bring out the delicious ،y flavors, but if you have time to pickle overnight, that is ideal for ،mum heat.
What kind of container s،uld I use for pickling?
Any kind of air-tight container works great for pickled peppers. We like to use 16 ounce mason jars with a lid but any size works. If you have smaller jars, just divide the ingredients between 2 smaller containers. Another option are air-tight food storage containers.
Pickled peppers last for up to 2 weeks in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. To save time (and dishes), use a mason jar with a lid so you can pickle and store them in the same container!
Spicy pickled peppers add a welcome pop of flavor to many of our favorite recipes! They’re great toppers for:
PS: Add pickled peppers to your next ، mary for an extra kick!

Then, place the sliced onion into the jar. Be sure that all of the peppers are covered in vinegar.
Place the lid back on the jar and give it one more shake.
Finally, place the jar in the refrigerator for at least 2 ،urs or overnight for the optimal quick pickled peppers!
