Pickled Peppers

I am proud to say that we actually have a working vegetable garden. We have banana peppers, green peppers and tomatoes. We planted them a little late in the season, so we don't have any tomatoes yet and I am starting to wonder if we will get any at all.

Thankfully, peppers are really, really, really easy to grow and banana peppers grow the fastest in mass quantities. So, what do you do with banana peppers, we pickle them.

Not long ago, in a Kroger coupon book (believe it or not), I found a refrigerator pickle recipe. So easy and quick.

You need lots of peppers, at least we did, our peppers wear small.

Chop them up.

Place them in a clean mason jar (does not have to be sterilized)

and fill the jar with the following:
equal parts vinegar and water
I added a little salt 
and a bunch of fennel
Leave it in the Fridge for 48 hours, and Voila! You have your very own pickled peppers. I don't know how long they are supposed to last, but mine have been in the fridge for over a week and still taste amazing!!
