Pepper Vinegar

December 19, 2010

On a recent trip to the farmers market I came across these little peppers. For about 50 cents I came home with a few handfuls, cant beat that!

I decided to take most of them and make a pepper vinegar – similar to what they have in the little jar at Steak N Shake or other diners. The process is pretty simple, and probably took me less than 10 minutes.

First cut off the stems and cut a slit in the side of each pepper. This will help the flavor and heat of the pepper penetrate the vinegar more effectively.

Slide the peppers into the bottle – I also added a few garlic cloves for a little added flavor. I just used regular distilled white vinegar – brought it to a boil to help kill anything that might be hanging out in the bottle, and then poured it on in! 

Finished product just moments later! It has since taken on a light yellow color as everything melds. It has been great to use on collards, potatoes, pasta – really anything you want to add a little extra zing to!
