Have your banana pepper plants been going crazy like mine have? I've been adding them to soups and salads, but I wanted something else to do with them. I decided to do the standard pickling (recipes are widely available so I won't reproduce here), but I went WAY heavy on the whole cloves of garlic, and added chopped basil to the mixture. this added a GREAT tang to them. they are so delicious that I pop them out of the fridge for a snack!
Make sure to pack the sliced peppers in well because the more you get in, the more you'll have soaking in that delicious brine. Also a great, beautiful gift to give your friends and family -- and they go well on pizza. enjoy!
