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.
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
guys do u thing that would be very sweet? I just did it but im wondering it may taste like a dessert...also after how long can u eat it?
How many heads is a gallon of cabbage? Or pounds would be easier yet. I'm guessing 3 lbs. of cabbage is a gallon. Also a length of time before eating would be helpful. My grandmother also place 2 cloves of garlic and a sprig of dill in each jar.
