I have harvested a bunch of chillies from the garden, so many I thought it’s a great idea to save them. So you can preserve them for future use in two very easy ways. I have discovered: freezing or pickling.

Freezing Red Chilli’s

Take about 8 red chillies and chop really finely

Place half a teaspoon in each section of an ice tray

Fill with mineral water

Freeze

You can now use each ice cube every time you’re cooking. Add to the saucepan, and flash it into any meal that needs zesting up! Easy!

Sterilize one jar and lid by boiling it in water for a while

Chop up your half kilo/ one pound of red chillies, and remove the stems

???????????????????????????????

Soak in 3 tablespoons of salted water for a while and then drain off the water.

Heat one litre of white wine vinegar/cider vinegar and

6 tablespoons of castor sugar

Stuff your jar with chillies and a few lemon leaves

Pour over the heated liquid

Now allow for it to cool down before putting the lid on.

Voila!!! Amazing preserved pickled chillies, that look gorgeous!.
