Hungarian Hot Peppers in Oil

  1. Hello all, I'm new to the site and thought I would share a hot pepper in oil recipe.

    My family and I love these peppers on steak, pizza, etc. and there are absolutly wonderful on a salami sandwich with good italian bread. So here goes it:

    Hot banana Peppers

    pinch of salt

    vegetable oil, canola oil (either one, doesnt make a difference)

    slice peppers crosswise about an 11/2-2 inches long

    put slices seeds and all in a pot

    add the oil covering about 2/3 of the peppers

    add the salt and bring it all to a full boil

    boil for 1 minute and then stir the top the the bottom for another 1 minute

    place a strainer over another pot and strain the peppers allowing all the oil to drain into the other pot (your going to keep all the oil which has tremendous flavor)

    Once its done straining take the peppers and place them onto an aluminum pan

    so they can cool off. The peppers will continue to cook some in the pan so you want to cool them off as quickly as possible,

    When everything has cooled off we take the peppers and place them inside plastic quart size containers (like soup containers) then pour (the oil you boiled the peppers in) into the container covering the peppers. 

    We freeze them for storage and thaw them out when needed.

    They are best eaten at room temperature.

    Also the oil is great to fry scrambled eggs in!

  3. Hi Kat,

    I sure will....I had just made a small batch last night with peppers from our garden (for a white pizza tonight) and it crossed my mind to take some pics only when I was typing out the recipe. The next batch I make. I'll take pics of the process.
