WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Using sweet brine instead of sour tempers the heat of hot peppers in these sweet pickled peppers.

Ingredients
Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 2 pounds
    hot peppers, sliced or halved (about 8 cups)
  • 3 cups
    distilled white vinegar, or cider vinegar
  • 3 cups
    water
  • 1 1/2 cups
    sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon
    sea salt
Instructions
  1. Place a large bowl of ice water next to the stove. Bring a large pot of water to a boil in a large pot. Add half of the peppers, cover, return to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the peppers to the ice water to cool. Repeat with the remaining peppers. Drain the cooled peppers and divide among 6 pint-size (2-cup) canning jars or similar-size tempered-glass or heatproof-plastic containers with lids.
  2. Combine vinegar, 3 cups water, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar and salt dissolve. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. Carefully fill jars (or containers) with brine to within 1/2 inch of the rim, covering the peppers completely. (Discard any leftover brine.)
  4. Place the lids on the jars (or containers). Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
