Maple Pickled Hot Peppers
Wash, stem and slice hot peppers of any (or mixed) varieties and pack in clean jars of appropriate size.
Add a peeled clove of garlic and a sprig of fresh fennel flower (or substitute dill weed) to each jar.
Add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup (or maple sugar). Fill the jar with apple cider vinegar.
Seal, store in the fridge and enjoy on . . . just about everything. The peppers become less hot and more yummy over time with just a touch of sweetness.
