Prepare the brine solution
We were gifted a giant bag of Serrano peppers, and since they were way more than we could eat I decided to pickle them. Learning how to pickle peppers is super easy to learn!
In a medium sauce pan over medium heat combine the distilled white vinegar, water, garlic cloves (if you don't have whole cloves then minced will work fine), black peppercorns, kosher salt, sugar, and coriander seeds. Bring to a boil, and simmer for five minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the peppers into ¼" rings then place in the jar. Leave a few of them whole, but pierce them with a skewer or toothpick.
Pack tightly in the jar. Pour brine solution over top of the peppers.
Let it cool completely, and then refrigerate for up to one month.
