Boiling makes the peppers mild

Depending on how much “heat” you want, boil the Rocoto Peppers in from 1-3 separate salted water and vinegar baths for about 3-5 minutes each time. Taste the Rocoto after each bath to see how mild you have made them. After three baths, generally the Rocoto Peppers are very soft and virtually without any of their former spiciness. Vinegar retards the peppers from too soft too fast.
