Southern Pickled Tabasco Peppers Recipe: A Recipe for Pepper Growers

Bottles of hot pepper vinegar are sitting on kitchen tables and restaurant tables across the south. And if you don't see a bottle and order collard greens, it's a pretty good bet that one will be delivered with your meal. 

My tabasco pepper plant in my garden is already going nuts. With my last harvest of tabasco peppers, I made this easy hot pepper vinegar recipe. You can eat the peppers like any pickled pepper, but the magic is in the vinegar. Sprinkle it on greens or any vegetablefishfried chickenchicken-fried steak or in soupstews or beans or add it to salad dressing recipes for some heat.
