    Picked a peck of peppers and pickled them

    Our peppers were coming in good so we picked a basket ​ ​Then we chopped them up into rings ​ ​ ​ We added garlic ​ 2% of the weight in salt. 2% salt brine to cover so the total salt was 2% for everything. ​ ​ We weighed everything down, covered it with an airlock. ​ After about a week we will start taste testing. When they get to where we like them we'll move them to the fridge.

    What variety of peppers? I had a great recipe for these that I've misplaced and am trying to locate.

              I'm a fan of this website superhotchiles.com Refining fire chilies. They've got a pretty good selection with different heat levels. I think they have italian pepperoncini. Any variety will work to pickle it just depends how hot you want it.

            I think I will try this as it looks like I will have a good crop of hot peppers this year. I usually make fermented hot sauce from them.

              Nice! I make lots of sauces too. This is more or less the same process. Blended up hot sauce left whole pickles. Enjoy your crop!

              Can you please post a more detailed recipe. Did you add dry salt and a brine? What pH were you looking for? how long did you sous-vide the cans at 180 deg? Was this for pickeled jalapeno? I'm thinking of making jalapeno fermented hot sauce.

                2% Salt to the weight of everything. The pH was 3.2 on a Milwaukee meter calibrated that day. 180 for 30mins which is usda recommended for canning home fermented peppers, could be stovetop 180-5 its just easier to keep the temp sous vide. Definitely works good for jalapeños.
