  • 1 pound mixed chili peppers sliced into rings (I used a variety here, mostly sweet but some hot peppers as well, all from my garden)
  • 2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasonings
  • 2 tablespoons pickling salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 bay leaves


  • Slice the peppers into ¼ inch rings and discard the stems. If you’d like, you can core out the peppers first. I usually do not.
  • Loosely pack them into 2 quart-sized jars.
  • Add the vinegar, water, Cajun seasonings salt, honey and bay leaves to a large pan.
  • Bring the mixture to a quick boil. Remove from heat and stir.
  • Pour the brine over the peppers and screw on the caps.
  • Refrigerate at least 24 hours before using to develop the flavors. They are best after a week.


Heat Factor: Mild to HOT, depending on your choice of peppers.
