Quick Pickled Bell Peppers

You know when to pick bell peppers. But do you know how to pickle a pepper? This Quick Pickled Bell Peppers recipe will give you crisp, tasty pickled peppers in as little as 24 hours!




  1. Slice the peppers into rings or strips and set aside.
  2. Slice other raw vegetables into bite-sized pieces and set aside (optional).
  3. Pack sliced peppers (and optional vegetables) into a clean mason jar. (Really pack them in so no pieces will be floating once you add the brine.)
  4. Bring the water, vinegar, salt, and sugar to boil in a saucepan. Add herbs/spices if you like.
  5. Pour the brine over the peppers to completely cover them.
  6. Close the jar lid tightly and let the jar cool completely on the counter.
  7. Put jar in the fridge and let the pickling peppers sit for at least 24 to 48 hours.
  8. Pickled peppers will store for up to 3 months in the fridge.
