Quick and Easy Chili Pickles Recipe
By: 
 
Makes one big jar.
  • Fresh whole chilies
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pickling spice (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
  • You'll also need a sterilized wide mouth jar
  1. Wash the chillies under running cold water.
  2. Poke a few small holes in the top of each chili to allow the pickle to penetrate them.
  3. Add the water, vinegar, optional pickling spice, and sugar to a pot and slowly bring to a boil. Remove from the stove the moment it starts boiling.
  4. Meanwhile, pack the chilies into the sterilized bottle.
  5. Carefully pour the just boiled pickle mixture over the chilies, leaving no headspace.
  6. Let it cool and remove trapped air bubbles by gently tapping the jar on the table.
  7. Seal and store in the refrigerator. Use within four to six weeks.
