To meet current guidelines, the filled jars should be processed in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes up to 1000 feet in elevation, 15 minutes from 1000 to 6000 feet, and 20 minutes at over 6000 feet.
While this wonderful recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, using a technique that is no longer considered safe, it is perfectly safe if processed using modern methods. If you are unfamiliar with these techniques, please go to http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/can_home.html for the current information. It is recommended that these jars of whole stuffed pickled peppers be processed in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes at sea level, longer at higher altitudes. Inverting the jars is also not recommended, as it can cause the lids to not seal properly.
This recipe caught my eye because I had so many hot banana peppers. I tried it and it is delicious. Very time consuming but worth it.They are crispy and delicious.I got tired of stuffing them about half way through and just sliced peppers into rings and layered the peppers and cabbage and then poured on the vinegar mixture. The stuffed ones look prettier but the others were simpler and I can used them in potato salads etc.Thanks
