Pepperoncinis are sweet, mild chili peppers, usually sold pickled. Also known as Tuscan Peppers, sweet Italian peppers, or golden Greek peppers.
The peppers are sweet and mild in flavor, not very hot, although they can vary and be found up to a medium heat level.
You’ve most likely encountered a pickled pepperoncini in an Italian antipaso platter, Italian salad, or served up on a pizza or sub sandwich somewhere.
They are most often found pickled. You can purchase the peppers in jars, pickled, where they last quite some time, offering up their sweetened, tangy flavour.
