Last of the Peppers

Puppy went an harvested all the Peppers from his little garden yesterday afternoon. We 
will probably freeze most of these HOWEVER, it would be nice to string the cayenne peppers. 
The Kitty Justice is I wish I had watched my Grandmother and Mom string the hot peppers. I guess I will have to check Google.

We love peppers too. Those look great. Don't you love fresh veggies?

You should pickle them, Lady Di...they'll keep well. You probably have stacks of recipes for same...but here are a couple of simple ones.

Pickled Peppers:

2 each medium green, sweet red and yellow peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
2 teaspoons mixed pickling spices
1/2 teaspoon celery seed

In a large glass bowl, combine peppers and onion; set aside.
In a saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar and water. Place the pickling spices and celery seed in a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up the corners of cloth and tie with string to form a bag. Add to saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil for 1 minute.
Transfer spice bag to pepper mixture. Pour the vinegar mixture over all. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours, stirring occasionally.
Discard spice bag. Peppers may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Yield: 4 cups.

Wish you were close enough to share. Fresh veggies are the best. Did Sandy change your weather? Peace

My mother had lots of recipes but nothing like the one you shared. I may have to try that one, if I can get Puppy to help. Peace

You live far enough south to have an extra planting but it gets too cold here in TN. Peace
