Scratch-Made Fire & Ice Pickled Peppers

Scratch-Made Fire & Ice (Dilled) Pickled Peppers

Many of us have made traditional “fire and ice” pickles using store-bought dill pickles. Our twist is a fast way to use those summer peppers that seem to come from every which way all at once … no processing, just refrigerate, eat and share. This recipe doesn’t require exact amounts, so you can make brine and use any amount of peppers (or other vegetables) you have.
