Dip the cleaned peppers in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, but no longer. Finely chop the horseradishes and chervil. Prepare a brine from 1 gal (4 liters) of water, the salt and vinegar. Boil it and allow it to cool to body temperature.

Arrange the blanched peppers in a dry container, gently pressing them. Put some chervil, horseradishes, bay leaf and black pepper between them. Pour the brine over the peppers and add the mustard seeds on top, you can even place it in a small bag.

Wrap the container tightly with parchment paper and store it in a room with a constant temperature of 69.8°F (21 °C). Then strain the brine, arrange the peppers in jars, and between them, put lemon slices.
