 Ingredients List

  • Filtered water
  • Heinz distilled white vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp. coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 3 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 2 tbsp. peppercorns (I use a mix of 4 different colors black, white, pink & green)
  • 1 ”“ 2 lbs. mixed peppers depending on what size canning jar you will be using.


Slice the peppers and pack them into a glass jar until there is no more space. If you would like to leave the peppers whole and slice later you can do that as well just make sure that the jar is packed really tight. I like to leave a few whole peppers and slice the rest that way we have both.

Once the peppers are packed in the jar cover them with filtered water. Pour the water into a large measuring glass and make note of how much you have. Pour out exactly half of the water and replace it with Heinz distilled white vinegar. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons salt for every 3 cups of the water and vinegar mixture. This is your pickling liquid!

Place the pickling liquid and the remaining ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Let the liquid cool for a few minutes and then remove the thyme springs and bay leaves. Pour the pickling liquid over the peppers stopping 1/2 inch from the top. Slide a clean rubber spatula around the inside of each jar to remove air bubbles. Wipe the rim with a clean towel and screw on the lid. Let the pickles rest for a few hours to cool and then shake the jar to distribute the spices evenly. The spices will settle as the pickles sit in the fridge so I turn my jar every few days to let the spices redistribute.

You can use these little beauties as soon as they have cooled but the flavor gets better with time so, if you can resist, let them sit for at least 4-5 days. They will last for up to 2 months in the fridge”¦maybe even longer. We go through them too fast for me to really know.
