how do you keep peppers crunchy when canning

Adding a bit of Calcium Chloride, or otherwise termed in cooking as pickle crisp, may help. Alum also does the same function, if I am not wrong. However, you may have to do a research on the quantity to add. Also, refrigerated pickles rather than canned version, make much crisper pickled peppers.
