If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers….

Make your own pickled peppers…Easy!

You will need:
–a bunch of medium sized banana peppers and/or small thin skinned peppers
–red wine or apple cider vinegar
–one head of garlic
–one bouquet of broad leaf parsley
–olive oil

In a large pot, fill with water and about half cup of vinegar. Bring to boil. Blanch the peppers for about a minute (be sure to poke each pepper with a fork beforehand) and drain. Chop the parsley and sliver each clove of garlic. Set aside. In a large glass or clear plastic container, begin to layer the parsley, garlic, peppers, squirt of vinegar and a good salting. Repeat until the jar is full.  Fill to the top with olive oil. 

Leave on your kitchen counter for a day or two and then refrigerate. When you want to serve, pull out a few of the peppers along with the garlic and parsley. Save the juices/oil to make another batch when your garden says, “Enough, already!”
