This great little pepper has been highly prized in Tuscany for years.
An Italian heirloom that produces a 3-5" pepper with just a touch of heat.
Bushy, small plants provide excellent sun-scald protection and tons of sweet fruit.
Italian Pepperoncini Peppers are yellow and then turn to red as the sweet flavor intensifies.
Excellent pickled or raw.
From one of our customers (sent in October - still getting peppers!):
The peppers turned out great. I grew them in East Point, GA (Atlanta) in large potting soil pots. They did very well, and I am still getting new peppers, so hopefully I can squeak out one more batch of canned pepperoncinis. I found a good recipe and they turned out great. Here is the basic recipe:
4c plain vinegar
8 Tablespoons canning salt
1/8 tsp alum (per pint jar)
2 bay leaves
2 garlic cloves
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
4 springs of fresh oregano
Rinse the peppers in a water bath. Poke a few holes in each pepper with a small fork to allow juice to get inside peppers. Boil water and vinegar and canning salt together. Sterilize jars and canning lids in boiling water bath, remove jars. Add alum, bay leaves, garlic, thyme and oregano. Then stuff jars with pepperoncinis. Remove lids from water. Using a funnel, carefully pour boiling vinegar/water mix into the jars to top of jar (the level of water in the jar will adjust as it seeps into the peppers). Immediately put lid on and tighten ring. Once the jars cool, store in a refrigerator. They should be edible in about 6 wks.
These peppers made with this recipe are awesome, and I think they are even better than the pepperoncinis I buy in the grocery store.
