Pickling peppers is easy! When you only have a few peppers, this Pickled Peppers recipe will do nicely. Just grab some white vinegar and go!
You can use any kind of pepper. To add a kick, put a whole hot pepper in the middle. Just make a couple slits to the hot pepper with a knife. The more slits, the spicier the result. (For less spice, remove the seeds.)

Place the salt, sugar, and garlic in a sterilized quart jar. Pack the peppers firmly into the jar, with the skins facing out. Pour in the vinegar. Fill the jar to within ½-inch of the top with boiling water. Seal and process in a boiling-water bath for 5 minutes; start counting the processing time when the water starts to boil. Set aside to cool undisturbed for 12 hours.
