I have searched here as well as on the web for a recipe for making pepperocini but can not find anything. Does anyone have one or know how to make them raw?

pepperccinis are a pepper, and they are canned in vinegar, however, you can buy fresh peppers and place them in vinegar and they will taste great.

RP - Is it the banana peppers they use or another type? I was trying to find out which type and figured I could use the raw ACV but wasn't sure how long to soak it or with or without lid, etc..... :o Hubby loved those on his salads before and so I bought some yellow peppers that are hot but not sure what kind they are....not the same texture fresh ;) Thanks!

Pepperoncinis are a specific type of pepper. From Wikipedia: "The pepperoncini (Italian peperone, peperoncino), also known as Tuscan peppers, sweet Italian peppers, waxed peppers, and golden Greek peppers, is a variety of Capsicum annuum." I think banana peppers have a similar flavor, though, so you could probably use those if you can't find pepperoncinis.

Spectatrix - thanks I did not realize they were actually their own pepper as I have never seen them in the produce section! Sweet of you to look that up and post it for me! I will go ahead and try it with the banana peppers and hope he likes that! Have a great day! ;)

you could wilt them in slices in the dehydrator first, or salt them to soften them up to simulate the cooked pickled pepperoncini, then put them in vinegar.

So I chopped up the banana pepper and placed it in a canning jar with a smidge of sea salt and enough raw apple cider vinegar to cover it overnight in the fridge with lid on....next day I took out the peppers and enough vinegar to *marinate* and placed in dehydrator at 100 degrees for almost 6 hours, then popped them back in the jar and in the fridge....hubby likes them although they are a bit spicy hot....of course when I looked at the jar that I thought were pepperoncini's but labelled as something else they were actually banana peppers, vinegar, salt, some other preservative and coloring.....so mine turned out similar enough that hubby likes them! :p Thanks for your help everyone!
