Robert tx smoker tx smoker was talking to me about spicy vinegar. I have a touch over 3 quarts of his recipe. And was thinking about using other peppers as well. So, I found some Long hot peppers. And while their heat level can vary like crazy. I figured it would turn out interesting either way.

Boiled a 50/50 blend of white and cider vinegar.

Filled up. And capped. Give them a week or so then try them out. Then I'll put them in some better looking bottles.

Yum, I flat out love pepper vinegar, try adding some salt to one jar Steve....I add a tea spoon per jar.

I use pepper vinegar like it's going out of style, I always have a bottle on the kitchen table.
Those Japanese long peppers are awesome grilled with smoked sea salt and lots of fresh lime juice. I make them by the pan full when I smoke briskets, butts or ribs, everyone loves snacking on them while sipping a cold beer.

I thought about that. And now I am going to add that now. The liquid is still plenty warm enough. Thanks!

I don't even heat the vinegar when I make it , I'm lazy.
I just toss everything in and shake it up, most of the salt melts in a day or two, I just keep adding vinegar and peppers to it as needed. I've had the same big Patron bottle going for well over a year, I add all sorts of peppers to it.
I haven't killed anybody with it yet......LOL!!!

We like it of fried fish, chicken, pork and rice.

Now that is a perfect use for that bottle. Perhaps that bottle of Redemption rye will have a new life soon! I've used the vinegar on veggies. Last night it was steamed Broccoli. I've always put vinegar on some veggies. But this really does kick things up.

I have the bartender at the little bar down the street from me save me a few bottles and make up a batch and give them to friends for Christmas. Anytime I see a cool bottle I ask the gal to save them for me, I always bring her BBQ so she makes sure I get them. My favorite bottles to give away as gifts are the Crystal Head Vodka bottles.

Steve! The king of bottling and canning (jars). Looks like another good job to me. I love the hot stuff as well.
