A pickled pepper is a Capsicum pepper preserved by pickling. This process usually involves submersion in a brine of vinegar and salt water with herbs and spices, including peppercorns, coriander, dill, and bay leaf.[1][2]

Common pickled peppers are the banana pepper, the Hungarian wax pepper, the Greek pepper, the serrano pepper and the jalapeño. They are often found in supermarkets alongside pickled cucumbers.

Pickled sliced jalapeño peppers are also used frequently for topping nachos and other Mexican dishes.[3][4]

The flavored brine of hot yellow peppers is commonly used as a condiment in Southern cooking in the United States.[5][6][7]

In popular culture[edit]

The nursery rhyme "Peter Piper" includes the line, "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers".
