Quick Pickled Chillies Quick Pickled Chillies are a great condiment for punching up the flavour of burgers, Asian soups, noodles, stir frys.

Quick Pickled Chillies are a tasty condiment for spicing up stir fry dishes, soups, Asian rice dishes, burgers, or Russian ones such as Plov. It’s also a great way to punch up a hot dog in a bun, much tastier than plain ketchup and mustard (so spicy)! I love pickled foods. Dill Pickles and Quick Pickled Pattypan Squash taste amazing on burgers, you need to try it! I have so many chilli peppers growing in my garden, and it seemed like they ripened all at once. It’s always convenient to have fresh chillies growing in the garden, but I had 1kg/2lbs of  ripe chilli peppers, so many peppers.

Quick Pickled Chillies recipe are a great way to preserve your peppers, so you can eat them when you’re ready. I don’t seal and “can” the jar of peppers, so it can be kept unrefrigerated, I always keep them in the fridge. If you want the whole canning process, check my Canned Pickled Russian Tomatoes recipe. I just I love the vinegar-y pickled infused blast of flavour it adds to my meals. It only takes 20-25 minutes tops, and is so easy to make. Pickled and fermented foods taste amazing, and are becoming a lost art, this recipe is so easy, it’s worth a try! Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!

  4. Carefully fill the jar with the hot brine, completley submerging the the chillies with the brine. Leave a ¼" gap from the top of the jar.
  5. Close the jar and allow to cool on the counter overnight. Keep refrigerated. It's best to allow the chillies to infuse for a few days before eating. If the brine levels are lower than the chillies, add more brine, or the chillies may turn brown from the exposure the air.

  1. Wow, thank you for sharing this, Peter! I didn’t imagine it’s so easy to make. Look at the beautiful redness – really appetizing – and what a nice garden you have!

    Ah, coriander seed is another unknown herb …. just learnt from Russian black bread (on the web). It tastes like coriander leaves?

    • Thanks Rotwein! You can easily omit the coriander seed. It tastes different from the leaves. And yes, so easy to make, makes me wonder why we ever bought store ones!

    • Thanks Lynne! I usually like to have a slow and steady stream of peppers growing, but it all just ripened at once, so this was awesome to make again 🙂
