I had these on a sandwich, and they were great. Sweet and just a bit spicy. Easy to make too. Thanks for sharing!

I can't believe I forgot to rate these! I pickled most of our banana peppers from the garden last year with this recipe. It is absolutely amazing! I love them on pizzas, subs, strombolis, roast pork sandwiches, Italian beef sandwiches...the list goes on. Love the addition of peppercorns - it gives an added zing and makes the jars so pretty. I also added 1/2 tsp of ground turmeric to the whole vinegar mixture and 1/8 tsp of pickle crisp (calcium chloride) to each pint jar.
