Re:Pepper Vinegar In Old Recipes
Well, last night I purchased some Serrano peppers, slit, and stuffed them into a small 8 oz mason jar with a dozen peppercorns and a teaspoon of canning salt. Poured boiling, white vinegar over them and we're going to see what materializes. I did some searching last night on the web and found a mention that in Savannah, GA , that it was common to put up Bird's Eye peppers for pepper vinegar. That would be significant as much of Fl's residents back then were settled by GA ex pats and cuisine tended to be similar to lower GA. I know next to nothing about pepper varieties as beyond Bell peppers, it's not used in local dishes.
Thanks all for the suggestions.
