Pickled Long Green Peppers

(Sivri Biber Tursusu)

<br />
Pickled Long Green Peppers
500 gr long green peppers, washed
4-5 stems of parsley

For the pickling liquid (pickle brine):
2 cups water
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp liquid oil
1/2 tsp paprika
1-2 garlic cloves, mashed with salt

Arrange the long green peppers into the medium clean glass jar.

Bring to boil water, vinegar, salt, oil paprika and garlic for 2-3 minutes into the pot. Turn the heat off. Let it cool down first. Then pour into the jar, cover the peppers.

Tightly cover the jar, turn up side down. Occasionally turn the jar up side down:) Keep it cool and humid place for about 15 days.

It is up to you, what ever you like:)
I had sweet and hot long peppers. But I added a few small cubanelle peppers to fill the jar:)

Thank you for this web site. I lived near Adana, Turkey for 5 years. I long for Turkish food and sometimes dream of going to my favorite Kabab stand.

Do you know where I could get the seeds for the long, thin and mild Turkish peppers? I want to grow my own.

Thank you again,

Hi Rick,
Thank you:) You and my husband share the same dreams:)
We, the Turks that live outside of Türkiye, usually bring the seeds of sivri biber from our country.
Take care,

My husband is Turk, and we have no one to send the sivre biber from Turiye. I do love those peppers so much, especially for coban salad. The closest thing I've found here is annaheim peppers. Kendine iyi bak.

Some small farmers' market or large wholesale markets also carry these peppers if you have one close to you:)
Sende kendine iyi bak:)

Hi Binnur,

First of all thank you for your wonderful recipes in which I have tried & enjoyed many.

I have some sivri peppers & about to pickle, but please can you tell me where the recipe says 'liquid oil' does this just mean olive oil, sunflower oil etc.

Thank you in advance

Thank you:) Any liquid oil can be used. I use sunflower oil:)
Take care,

Hi Binnur,
Thank you for all those great recipes; I'm learning to cook thanks to you :-)

I have 2 questions about the picked peppers:

1. How long do they keep good if I leave the jars unopened?

2. I bought seeds in Turkey and, because we had such a hot summer this year in Toronto, the peppers grew really well. But are you able to grow them in Toronto on a regular summer (or do you build a sort of greenhouse for them)?

Thank you,

Thank you Sophie!

You can keep them unopened for a few months.

As far as I know, the green peppers grow here in Toronto without a greenhouse on a regular summer :)

The seeds are now available in the U.S.! I have not grown these yet (I'd brought some back from Turkey with me), but it is great to have them available here now!
