MARINATED PEPPERS

Marinated vegetables are very popular in Georgia and marinated hot peppers are a particular favorite. In this family recipe we show how to marinate hot peppers that can be stored for many months.

Marinated Peppers

Ingredients (sufficient to fill about 12-13 one kilo jars): 4 kilos of sweet peppers, 6 kilos of hot red and green peppers (the peppers must be fresh and not dry), 1.5 liters of oil, 2 liters of wine vinegar, 250 grams of sugar, 200 grams of salt, 1 tbs of black pepper corns, 50 grams of fresh parsley, 80 grams of celery leaves, 600 grams of garlic (net weight after removing skins), and 15 large bay leaves (or 20 small).

Preparation: Cut one side of each pepper (half the length) to allow the marinade to be absorbed.

Slitting the Peppers

Chop the celery leaves and parsley. Thinly slice the garlic.

Cut Ingredients

Add the sugar, salt, black pepper corns and bay leaves to a deep pot.

Boiled Peppers

Use a sieve to drain off the liquid into a bowl. Put the peppers into a separate bowl. Return the liquid and bay leaves to the pot.

Sieve the peppers

Repeat the process with the remaining peppers until all of the peppers have been boiled in the liquid.

Ready for next stage

Allow the liquid used to boil the peppers to cool for about 10 minutes and then add the chopped celery leaves, parsley and sliced garlic.

Stir thoroughly but carefully with a wooden spoon.

Mixing

The peppers are now ready to be stored in sealed jars.

Mix thoroughly

Storing: Prepare the jars and covers by washing them in very hot water and leaving until they are completely dry. Fill each jar and use a gloved hand to press down the peppers.

In Jars - Copy

Top up each jar with the liquid remaining in the pot. The liquid should completely cover the peppers. Each jar needs to be filled to the brim to create a vacuum. The jars should be stored in a cool, dark basement or be refrigerated.

Serving: Marinated peppers can be eaten with lobio or meat dishes or by themselves.
