These Marinated Mini Bell Peppers might have been a side that you've had at a Russian or Ukrainian gathering! Mini bell peppers are marinated in a homemade syrup then chilled. 


  • 1 lb mini bellpeppers
  • 1 liter water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 5 tbsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup oil


  • Wash, and pat down dry the mini bell peppers.
  • Heat oil over high heat until very hot in a shallow non-stick pan (about 5 min). Add the peppers to the hot oil and quickly toss to coat for about a minute; remove immediately.
  • Drain peppers from oil in a colander. Do NOT wash, we need that oil for our marinate. We just want to get rid of any excess oil.
  • Combine the water, sugar and salt in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil. Once boiled add vinegar and turn stove off.
  • Place peppers in a bowl or glass jar and pour hot liquid (syrup) over the peppers. Allow to sit overnight and then refrigerate. Serve cold.
