    Picked the last of the Serrano chilies from the garden. Thought some sweet and sour pickled would hit the spot. Turned out pretty hot, was surprised, but pleased.

    Last pile of pepper from the garden

    Brine is 3/4 C. water, 3/4 C white vinegar, 3-4 T sugar. Heat in pan, drop in veggies, bring to boil, turn off. Pour into sterilized jar, thee days to two weeks in fridge and you’re good to go.

    Looks Great!
    Do you add anything to hold the color? (Like Lemon Juice or something like that?)

    When you get your jar, Chile, you can make relish out of it. :emoji_wink:

    I was going to mince them, but after slicing but before walking my knife across a few times, I found I just liked the way it looked.

    Only used vinegar. We’ll see how it holds.

    I bought a jar of Amish Sweet Pepper Relish last week.
    I was pleasantly surprised at the level of spicy heat and not too sweet.

    What a minute....
    You, surprised at a level of spicy heat?
    Is that possible?
    You are the guy that makes snacks out of Carolina Reepers, and Ghost Chilies. :emoji_anguished::emoji_wink::emoji_laughing:

    Hummm, not me. I’m a wimp. I draw the line at my favorite Chile, the habanero. But actually what surprised me was the level of heat. Not too much, but more than usual from seranis. :)

    When you're used to very little if anything resembling spiciness from such, then yeah finding some measurable amount is surprising.
    It was pretty mild but there it was.
