Pepper Vinegar

Pepper vinegar-the aromatic, piquant liquid from chiles that have been pickled for at least 3 weeks-is a household staple in many parts of the South. It is used in the kitchen and on the table to liven up stews and vegetable dishes. Store-bought pepper vinegar is available in Southern supermarkets and West Indian markets
