Pickled Banana Peppers have always been one of my favorite ways to add a pop of flavor to any dish. They’re perfect on a variety of bowls, salads, or other dishes. This particular (barely a recipe) recipe was inspire by the absolute overabundance of banana peppers in our garden. Let’s be honest, without a quick pickling, these little peps don’t taste like a whole lot. Pickling them lends a vibrancy and bite that I just can’t get enough of.

Ingredients for Pickled Banana Peppers

Banana Peppers: Generally, you can find these mild peppers in the produce section of your grocery store if you don’t grow them yourself. Honestly, you could pickle any pepper you want here. It’ll work. Just be sure to wear gloves and avoid touching your eyes if you’re using a spicy variety.

White Vinegar: You could definitely use something like apple cider vinegar in its place if desired, but I prefer the white vinegar.

Water: To balance the acid of the vinegar.

Salt: To bring out optimum flavor in our peppers.

Garlic: Totally optional, but it takes the flavor to the next level.
