Pickled some peppers for the first time...
I've never actually pickled any until today. I used some HHWax peppers of mine, and just kind of winged the rest after looking it up. I boiled vinegar,salt, and some garlic - then poured it over the peppers. Then proceeded to hot water bath. And I added some 'pickle crisp' made by Ball, it's just calcium chloride (apparently it's supposed to keep them crisp) - I guess I'll have to wait and see on that part though.
The other sauce in the pic is a new batch with Fresno, Takunatsume, and garlic. It's nice and thick with a strong garlic and pepper flavor - but very mild. I'd say maybe 2.5 out of ten on heat.
Here's the peppers in the pot:
Any tips for future pickling are appreciated. I'm sure there's something I left out of this round.
