Peppadews (Piquanté Peppers): the Pickling Recipe
60 mins (prep 45, cooking 15)
12 ingredients

*** The description "Peppadews" is not accepted by the site, so I had to change it -- but it is NOT a bell pepper. Also called "piquante peppers", a peppadew is about the size of a golf ball or smaller. Although this pepper in its raw state is not available in the States, someone from South Africa has asked for a pickling recipe. Here is a great one, with which my sister and I pickled hundreds of bottles. The method can be used for any small peppers. In my family with a long history of canning/bottling we put clean bottles in a cold oven on an oven tin, heat oven to 325 deg F/ 160 deg C, and leave it there until needed (at least 15 minutes). This method has never failed us and our bottles keep perfectly -- without the hassle of the canning bath method. The amount of peppadews is a guess, as I never wrote that down! This recipe fills about 2 x 375 ml bottles. The peppadews shrink a little with cleaning and parboiling. Prep and cooking time are guesses.
