    When I was a kid I remember my Grandmother making peppers in a crock.  I remember her using green, red, banana, and other hot peppers.  Unfortunately being a kid I didn't pay attention.

    Recently I visited a local ethnic market that sells a large variety of olives, cheeses, olive oil, smoked meats, etc...There they were! The peppers I remembered.

    Does anyone know how to make these peppers?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,  John

    If they are fermented it is most likely just water, salt, and any spices you may want to add. I really prefer to pickle veggies through fermentation rather than vinegar. You might find some useful info at http://wildfermentation.com/

    Thanks for the response but I am hoping for detailed instructions instead of alternatives.  I appreciate the suggestion however.

    I found this site a while back too (maybe you had posted it before?).  It's great.  I started making sour pickles and just love them -- didn't use any vinegar to pickle this year.  I now have some sour kraut fermenting, and have made a batch of kimchi.  I'm hooked on fermenting!

    I have posted it more than a few times. [​IMG] And it has all the information you need to get started if you just spend a moment looking around. I really really prefer the fermented flavor over using vinegar. I haven't done sauerkraut yet but it is on my list. I still have 8 gallon sized bags of sour dills in the fridge.

    I would love to hear how your kraut turns out. Maybe you could start a new thread with the entire process and results? I am sure there are quite a few people here who would be interested.
