    wildheart's Note:

    These peppers are crispier than pimentos, and don't have that kind of weird undertaste that pimentos have. If you don't like your 'pimentos' hot, leave the jalepenos out.

      For years I have been looking for a recipe for bell peppers like the Jewish Deli here in Orlando used to serve on the tables. With a little tweaking this is IT!! I did not blanch the peppers first, just put them in the containers, and I cut them bigger, about 2 inches square. I then poured the hot mixture over them and let sit for two weeks in the refrigerator. At the end of two weeks I had my deli pepper pickles, and thank you so much!! Carole in Orlando
