Chili Pepper Vinegar 1/4 lb fresh red or green or mixed chilies 8 cloves of garlic 1 quart white wine vinegar Divide the chili peppers and garlic evenly among your gift containers Fill containers with vinegar. Allow to stand in a cool,dark place for about 3 weeks no less to develop flavor. Can leave longer but flavor will get quite intense. (Yield about 4 1/2 cups vinegar) I put these in small bottles and tie raffia around the top with some chili peppers glued to the bottle. Then add a name tag.
