So we planted our first garden this year and my husband wanted banana peppers. He likes the ones that are pickled that you can put on sandwiches, so he thought it would be good to plant some of our own. Problem is I don't have an easy way to preserve them so that he can enjoy them on sandwhiches and such. Can anyone help? We have soooo many right now and I don't want them to go to waste!





Thanks!


Natasha

Get some jars and lids. Wash them with hot soapy water and boil them in a pot of boiling water to sanatize.


Rinse your peppers in cool water and slice them as thin as you like. Pack them into a clean jar. Not really tight but snug.


Boil a hot of plain white vinegar on the stove


Pour the hot vinegar over the jar of peppers


Seal the jar with a lid and ring (have the lids in a pot and remove right before use.)





I make these every year. If you have any questions let me know.

Thanks for the info! I do have a questions though, do you have to seal the jars once you put everything in there or can I just store in the frig? I remember my mom doing the whole canning thing with a pressure cooker, etc. and that's a bit scary to me! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

After you do everything they should seal themself from the really hot vinegar in it. You just have to put the lid on quick after adding the vinegar. If they do not seal put about 2 inches of water in a pot and set your jars in it. Bring the water to a boil and listen for them to seal. I keep mine in the pantry untilI am ready to use them. Once you open a jar then keep it in the fridge.


The juice off of them taste wonderful on blackeye peas, cabbage, greens,and fried catfish.

Default Banana Peppers

Are banana peppers good after being frozen? I have several from my garden and would like to have some this winter for sandwiches, pizzas, etc. -TomH

Do I just add boiled vinegar to the jar of sliced peppers? Do I not have to add any other ingredients? My son has been wanting me to can him some. This has got to be the easiest recipe I've seen yet.
Thanks,

I made these last year and they were delicious. Even the last jar opened in May were not mushy like those you buy in the store. I have lots of peppers to pick this morning and will be using this method to can them. Thanks for the recipe!
