  • 10-12 Peppers of your choice -Jalapenos were used here
  • 3 carrots grated
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced or pressed
  • A bunch of fresh dill chopped
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon apple vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • Sea salt


  • In a bowl, combine the honey , olive oil, vinegars and whisk until well combined. Add in the grated carrots, garlic and chopped dill. Mix all together and add salt to taste.
  • Set marinade mixture aside
  • Roast the peppers- This can be done by holding the peppers with tongs over a gas flame on your stove or it can be done on a BBQ, this just takes a minute, on each side. You want the flesh to turn black with grill marks but to stay intact.
  • Put your roasted peppers into the marinade, mix all together and cover.
  • Refrigerate for several hours to several days, these treats get spicier and better with time.
  • You can always can a few jars for safe keeping.
  • Serve chilled with some bread and Bulgarian salami like Lukanka
