Yield: 1 servings
|4||Sweet red bell peppers|
|1 cup||Cider vinegar|
|2 teaspoons||Olive oil|
Recipe by: The Cook's Book of Uncommon Recipes - ISBN 0-940367-14-9 Clean peppers and remove stem, seeds and with pith. Cut into strips.
Cover with boiling water and allow to stan for 5 mins. Drain. While peppers are steeping, bring to a boil vinegar, water, sugar, and salt and simmer for 5 mins.
Place pepper strips in a sterilized quart bottle and pour the vinegar mixture over them. Cover and store in the refrigerator. Peppers should marinate for about 2 weeks before you use them.
The pimentos will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator but for longer storage, if you use them only occasionally, divide among small containers and freeze. This will make about 3-4 cups of pimento strips.
NOTES : Another prized but expensive treat that is relatively easy to make
Since the recipe directions did not mention where to use the olive
oil, I would suggest adding it into the vinegar mixture and boiling all together.
