      Excellent recipe - just opened a jar from the first batch we made and we were so excited about them that we are making a second batch today. A bit tricky to follow the recipe as written as the steps don't quite make sense but after rereading for a third time we got it done.

      Will update when I get to taste these in a couple of months. But for now, these were so easy to make. I used dried peppers because I don't like playing with fresh ones. My mouth waters just looking at the jars, and I can't wait to taste them. Thanks for posting Monica.

      Last year I was searching for a hot and spicy pickle recipe and I came across this one. I had never made pickles before and when I found this one and made the pickles everyone loves them. In fact I have a good friend who just loves these pickles, infact she always puts her order in to buy 4- quart size jars about every 2 months. I have to say that your husband Mondo is a very smart and creative person. Thank you so much for the great recipe.
