      Excellent recipe!!! I made 2 quarts as posted. I added 2 tbsps sugar to the remaining liquid and left the peppers out of the other 2 quarts. I also did a BWB for 20 mins, just to be safe!! I left them to sit for 3 months and they were perfect. The 2 made to recipe were perfectly spiced for my DH, the other 2 were perfectly sweet for me :) :) As soon as asparagus comes into season I will be making a few batches of each. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

      Superb! For "the pickling challenged", this recipe was extremely easy! The resulting product was not only pretty, but I must go to the grocery store today and get more asparagus - my mailman, neighbors, etc are BEGGING for more! Thank you so very much!!!
