Why we love these quick pickled sweet peppers

I made these pickled sweet peppers for our burger night last week, and they turned out awesome. They were so easy to make, and so yummy on our burgers. I will save those details for when I actually post the recipe for them, but I will say that they were the perfect tangy zip to match the smoky chipotle in our burgers. Hmmm. Can you guess what kind of burgers they were?

These pickled peppers would be a really unique homemade gift for the holidays too. Of course, they will need to be eaten within a week or two, and kept in the fridge, since they’re not fully pickled. But, they are so pretty in their jars. How could anyone not be happy with pretty pickled peppers?

They would also be a really beautiful addition to a relish tray.

  1. I haven’t commented to often on my wife’s amazing website because clearly people will think that I’m bias but I have to recommend these pickled peppers. We started out eating them with taco salad, then I had them in a regular salad then I put them on different kinds of sandwiches and I would definitely put a ton of them in an omelet. Now that I think of it, they would be great in stir fry as well. The possibilities are endless and I hope we always have a jar or two of them in our fridge from now on!

  2. These pictures are so stunning! They are making me want to make the recipe even more than the fact that it looks so simple! Thank you so much for sharing, i’ll report back after I’ve made it with how it turned out!

  3. Hi i tried this recipe and i couldnt use it on the peppers it was v v salty!! It needs a lot of less salt and sugar definitely.

    Ill try it again starting with a teaspoon of each and maybe equal parts of vngr and water.

    1. Hi Mort. I haven’t added nutritional information for this recipe, but when I converted it from my old recipe card, it automatically filled the info in as zero. I apologize for the discrepancy!

      1. Per serving, if it’s less than one gram the food nutrition chart will automatically set it at zero.

        Some folks shouldn’t be so picky.

  4. just a note – the pickles peter piper made are piper peppers, the fresh green seeds that make your black and white pepper pot dust. Piperaceae, They grow here wher I currently live where they are used as the fresh green berry in Thai food – and I am about to try pickling them right now.

  5. I don’t see the jar size indicated. Would it be a quart size Mason jar? And I’m using Swerve instead of sugar. Will Swerve work as a subsitute in a pickling recipe? I find the Swerve far less sweet than conventional sugar but love the authentic flavor. Will it pickle?

  6. On the Quick Pickled Sweet Peppers – have you tried canning them and if so, how? I have loads of peppers and would like to have some of these over the winter.

  7. ,Made chicken cheesesteaks for dinner tonight. I am from Philly and needed sweet peppers on them. I made your recipe, was wonderful but I did need to add a speck extra sugar and next time I will make it keto. Got rave reviews from my friend who came for lunch and we snuck some
