does anyone know why the seeds turned brown in my refrigerator pickled pepperoncini? NOT WATER BATHED! NOT PRESSURE CANNED!

Thank You----tom

Over ripe peppers, ionized table salt, did all jars have dark seeds?

I tend to agree with grady. The Iodine in iodized salt could have "stained" the seeds. When I do "refrigerator" type peppers, I never boil the vinegar...that tends to cook the peppers to some degree.

+1 what Grady said. I save pepper seeds, ounces of seeds and if I see any dark spots on the seeds from a pepper I throw them out. The pepper is usually good to use but it seems like the seeds are the first to show disease or going bad.

From my experience, when peppers turn color it's better to pick them sooner than later waiting on a bunch of peppers to ripen.

Water where did the water come from?
I have honestly tried to figure out what is going on.
Found one person on line asking same question about peppers gone bad.
Slitting peppers will not make seeds go south.

Plus one other thing.
You cant prove scientifically the seeds weren't brown before hand unless you saw the seeds.
Not saying you didn't see the seeds just saying.

ok if you start from first thread and read you'll see what i did, never mentioned iodized salt!, canning , sea salt, and kosher salt, are 3 i tried, peppers were not over ripe some were only a little over an inch long, water was distilled, and in one thread i stated that one jar i cut all the peppers in half from the same bunch of peppers i picked, so they were not brown unless i got extremely lucky in choosing the ones i cut in half, which i doubt. so pretty sure the whole ones seeds were white too,

Then the process needs to be repeated with controls.
Possible internal BER?
