Are pimentos spicy hot? And how long can you keep a jar in your cupboard?

Pimentos are not the spiciest things out there.
Jalapenos and the deadly 'ghost pepper' are the spiciest ones of them all
Pimentos are the kind that do well with cheeses, the well -known 'pimento dip'

canned pimentos, banana peppers, etc supposedly last only 3 to 4 days in the fridge, but, honestly, I have kept that sort of stuff for way longer and it seems to do fine

The jalapeño is considered one of the milder hot peppers, with a scoville scale of 1000 to 10000. Anything under 100 is considered a sweet pepper, like pimentos and banana peppers. The really hot ones start at 800,000 and go all the way up to 3 million! The hottest I will go are those little Thai chilies.


They max out at about 100,000 scoville.

Commercially prepared peppers should probably be used within 7-10 days. If they are stored in vinegar, you can propably push it to a few months, like pickles. But without acidity, you can risk a foodborne illness, which nobody wants. Better safe than sorry.

Can someone tell me what to do with a small jar of pimentos. Something simple. I've had them for awhile; don't remember why I bought them. But I don't want them going to waste.

Saute the chopped pimentos in olive oil and garlic and add to chopped spinach.

Also, chop pimentos and mix with softened cream cheese and spread on boiled ham slices.


Roll up and cut into 1" pieces and serve with cocktails.

Little grated cheese, little Miracle Whip - stuff it into celery.
