How to make sweet & spicy chili vinegar

Love the taste of banana peppers? This banana pepper-infused vinegar adds sweet, spicy, tangy flavor to any food -- especially fish and vegetables. My favorite way to use it is in brussel sprouts!


To a large pot, add water and bring to a boil for its heating up, begin your sauce.

At this point your water has been boiling awhile, so add your pasta. Follow the instructions on package OR boil for at least 8-12 minutes. Check it every couple of minutes after 8 minutes. Al dente.
