Hot Pepper Rings

So once again I bought an abundance of peppers that were close to getting soft on me before I could use them up. Naturally I pickled that, because lets be honest, it’s the best way to preserve your food. Plus you can’t go wrong with the divine flavor obtained from the pickling liquid.

What makes these pickled peppers different from my other pickled vegetables, is I turned the notch up a bit on the heat index. Not too intense on the spice though, just enough to give you a jolt of ohhh my! These hot pepper rings are ideal on fried bologna sandwiches, or any hot sandwich for that matter, a great topping for homemade pizza, and yummy in a pasta dish. It’s getting cold outside, so warm up with some pickled peppers!
