Note:All I did was chop up my hot or medium peppers (while wearing disposable gloves!), cleaning out 3/4 of the seeds, then put them in a clean jar, and add in this:
2 cups white vinegar1 tb kosher salt
1 tb zatarains spice mix (or if you prefer, this can be skipped or replaced with another seasoning mix)
Add vinegar, salt, and spice mix to a boil, poured over peppers, close the jar, cool to room temp then refrigerate.
Put a little bit of the chopped peppers and/or the juice into sauces or with the onion and garlic at the beginning of a sautee and it gives a very nice tangy heat.
