Peter Piper's Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation by John Harris (1756–1846)
- 12 green Scotch bonnet chillies
- 12 yellow Scotch bonnet chillies
- 12 red Scotch bonnet chillies
- 600 ml white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons allspice berries
- Sterlise some jars, by washing and rinsing them in hot water and placing them in the oven for 30 minutes at its lowest temperature.
- Slice the peppers and place them in the jars.
- Bring the vinegar to the boil, and add the salt and allspice.
- Allow to cool, then pour over the peppers.
- Seal the lids tightly and store until needed.
The chillies will be ready to eat after about 6 weeks. I suggest you wear plastic gloves when slicing the chillies.
