Pickled Jalapeno and Banana Peppers

On jalapeno pepper overload?  How about banana peppers?  When my sister and I made the Jalapeno Salsa, we also made these pickled jalapenos.  They are supposed to sit for 5-6 weeks before eating…so I don’t know how they turned out yet, but look how pretty they are!
**UPDATE – They are delicious! I will definitely make more of these next year!

And the best part is, they are super simple.
Pickled Jalapeno (or banana) Peppers
10-cups banana or jalapeno peppers
2-cloves garlic
4-cups white vinegar
2-tsp pickling salt
Pack washed peppers into hot sterile jars
Put 1/2 clove garlic in each jar
Boil vinegar & salt
Pack peppers in hot pint jars leaving ¼” headspace
Ladle hot liquid over peppers leaving ¼” headspace
Remove air bubbles with a non-metallic utensil
Put on caps
Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner
Best if left for 5-6 weeks before eating.
makes 10 cups

I also made more of these….

Click on the link for the recipe.  They do not require a canner or water bath, you just store them in the fridge (which my jars sealed on their own anyway).  These are delicious!  They require some spices, but are super easy.  The hardest part is cutting up all the banana peppers! (which could be done in a food processor if you don’t want “perfect” rings)  You could do jalapenos with this recipe as well.
Just remember….wear gloves when dealing with any kind of hot pepper!!!  Trust me on this, I learned the hard way last year.

  1. I've made the mistake of throwing a pinch of cayenne pepper in something before and then rubbing my face. OY!

    I think these look amazing. I'll get right on making some!

  2. Great tip on wearing gloves as I can confess of times I haven't and wished I had. This recipe looks beautiful in jars like that. Thanks a Latte' for linking up to the Canning Week Blog Party!

  3. I just picked about 5 lbs Jalapenos out of my garden 🙂 using 1/2 pint jars and mixing in some banana peppers…found this page & gonna start canning. Love pickled peppers, this should be fun & hope they turn out!
