NATIONAL PICKLED PEPPERS MONTH
National Pickled Peppers Month is an annual designation Observed in October. That’s right, a whole month dedicated to chowing down on these tasty snacks that are actually pretty healthy for you! Did you know the average American household purchases pickles and pickled peppers every 53 days? That’s pretty often considering they last forever until they go bad. In fact, it’s actually nearly impossible for them to go bad at all because of the acidity of the juice they’re stored in. Pickling preserves these veggies because it submerges them in a brine of vinegar and salted water with herbs and pickling spices like dill, coriander, peppercorns, and bay leaves. The most common peppers to be pickled are banana peppers, Cubanelle peppers, bell peppers, sweet and hot cherry peppers, Hungarian wax peppers, Greek peppers, serrano peppers, and jalapeno.
