We all have hobbies and over the last few years, some of us have picked up new ones with food. If you’ve grown chillies or like them, you’ll love trying these pickled and fermented chillies. They are a great way to preserve and use chillies in new ways, including making fermented chillie sauce. Other than extra zing to the flavour, fermentation helps promote healthy bactaria and keeps most of its vitamins. Pickling just preserves the chillies but will add some extra flavour and makes it a bit more mild.
Look out for commonly pickled varieties which include the sweet green pepper, jalapeno, Serrano and Greek chillies. Habanero chillies are also a great choice. Just make sure to clean and sterilise any jars before filling them: boil in hot water in a large pot, then dry upside down on the drying rack of your sink. They’re great for salads and the chillie sauce is great with seafood, nachos and anything you can think of that needs some heat.
Whether you want a bit of spice on your salad or a great condiment with your meals, try these pickled and fermented chillies recipes.
