Spicy Banana Pepper Rings

Spicy banana pepper rings are perfect on burgers, sandwiches, or a great addition to wraps and salads.

These are homegrown spicy banana peppers and they have a very easy pickling brine.

You could even make this same recipe with regular banana peppers that are not spicy if you prefer.

They will stay good in the refrigerator for a few weeks… if they last that long.

How to make spicy banana pepper rings

Start with five spicy banana peppers.

Slice them into rings, seeds and all.

Bring this mixture to a boil for one minute and let it cool slightly.

Brine for the banana Peppers

Finally pour the mixture over the spicy banana pepper rings.

Keep the jar in the fridge for at least three days before digging in.

The level of spice will depend on the banana pepper you use, if you would like it extra spicy you could even add crushed red pepper flakes.

We had them on chicken phillies, hot dogs, and sub sandwiches.
