    flightnurse's Note:

    I use hot hungarian peppers and modify the amount of sugar or splenda as well as the amount of seeds/membrane in the pepper to control the heat. We slice these length wise and they are great on burgers, pizza, salads, or even plain.

      I could drink the juice from these pickled peppers. The flavor is right on. My peppers got soft but I got stuck on the phone with them in the hot bath and they got overprocessed. Next time I will probably not even bother with the water bath.

      These are so yummy on cheese and crackers and it gets rave reviews from friends. I made the next batch using less sugar and added some dill. I skipped the water bath by putting the peppers, garlic and salt into the sterilized jars then pouring in the boiling brine, sealed the jars and refrigerator them once they were cool.

      This recipe is Great, only I did not hot bath the peppers, so they would be more crisp and I only added half of the sugar the recipe called for. Going to make another batch tomorrow.
