Pickled Habanada Peppers


2¼ cups rice wine vinegar
1¼ cups sugar
1/4 cup salt
1 pound Habanada peppers
Toothpick or skewer


  • With a skewer or toothpick, prick each pepper 2 times.
  • In a small pot, combine the vinegar, sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the salt and sugar. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Place the peppers in a bowl and pour the pickling brine over the peppers. Weight the peppers down with a small plate and allow to cool.
  • Transfer to a sanitized jar or container fitted with a lid. Pickled peppers will keep for up to 6 months in the refrigerator.
