Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thoroughly wash peppers. Seed and slice peppers in half. Make a pickling solution of 3 quarts of water, 1 cup salt, 1 quart of white vinegar. Bring the solution to a boil. Dip washed jars in boiling water, place a grape leaf in bottom of jar with lots of garlic crushed and/or whole, fill jar with peppers. Pour solution over peppers to within 1/2 inch of top. Run a flat utensil down the sides of the jar. Clean lip of jar with dry cloth, screw band firmly tight. Process in boiling water 10 minutes.
  2. I don't water bath these peppers and use them within one year. This recipe can be used for 1/2 gallon jars as well.

Used this to make red bell peppers husbands request they turned out phenominal and only had to wait a day or two. We skipped the hot water bath and the jars sealed just fine :) Thanks!
