  • 1 lb. mini sweet peppers sliced thinly
  • 2 large shallots sliced into rings
  • 1 ½ cups white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 5 tblsp. sugar or equivalent sugar substitute
  • 3 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes


  • Combine the sliced sweet peppers and sliced shallots. Divide evenly between two clean pint jars.
  • Add remaining ingredients to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour mixture evenly over the peppers and shallots.
  • Close jars with seals and rings. Allow filled jars to stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Refrigerate for an additional 24 hours before use. Keeps up to one month in refrigerator.


Note: this is not a “canning” recipe since the jars are not processed in a canner to create a seal. Even though you may hear a pop from the seals as the jars cool, it is not a complete seal and this recipe is not safe for shelf storage. Refrigerated storage is required.
