I got this recipe from a friend, who got it from a friend, who got it from a friend,... you get the picture. I like these pickles because they are so easy and very good. You can leave out the peppers if you don't like the "bite". They keep a long time, I've had mine in the extra fridge since last year and I'm just finishing them up. They do have to be stored in the fridge, though. Hope you like them!!
