MARINATED SWEET AND HOT PEPPERS

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

Marinated Peppers

Ingredients: 8 kilos of sweet green or yellow peppers, 1.5 kilos of hot red peppers, 2 kilos of onions, 180 grams of salt, 200 grams of sugar, 1.6 liters of vinegar, 1.5 liters of oil, 13-15 bay leaves, 500 grams of garlic (net weight after skins removed), 150 grams grams of parsley, 250 grams of celery leaves, and 1 tsp of black peppercorns.

Ingredients for Marinated Peppers

Preparation: Wash the peppers.

Washing Peppers

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

Preparing the Marinade

Add the vinegar and oil. Bring to the boil on a very low heat, stirring continuously. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

Marinade for Peppers

Add 10% of the peppers to the pot and use a wooden spoon to press them down. Boil the peppers on a low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently (and carefully).

Adding Peppers to the Pot

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

Sieve the Peppers

Chop the celery leaves and parsley. Slice the onions and remove the skins from the garlic.

Stir thoroughly but carefully with a wooden spoon. The peppers are now ready to be stored in sealed jars.

Thoroughly stir peppers

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. 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.
