Do u water bath them? I'm canning cherry peppers. All I want to do is pickle them. I need to know how. Just started canning again after 25 years of absent from it. Some things have changed. Please help me out. Thank You Lola Wynkoop

I have a great simple recipe for pickled hot peppers. Clean and slice (1/4" to 1/2 inch in size) hot hungarian, jalapeno, serrano, red chili or any other hot pepper you like. Loosely pack in canning jars, add one bay leaf per jar. Heat 1 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 Tbsp pickling spice (tie in bag to discard later) 1/4 cup water and 1 tsp canning salt to a boil, and pour over peppers in jar. Place jar lid after wiping jar rim clean; tighten band. Process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Do not forget the oil....its the secret ingredient which makes them so yummy! Each batch of liquid makes approx. two pint jars depending on how well packed...and I use a mesh ball instead of a just fine.

Sue, do you think this would work with sweet Italian peppers (like "Jimmy Nardelli sweet peppers")? I've got a bunch that I don't want to lose, ...tired of frying them.

i would like know if the pickles on the jar should stay on the frezze or room temperature?

It says to seal, I think this is what is called basic water bath process. You do the same for pickles for canning. Cover the filled jars with 1" above tops of boiling water for 10 minutes. Canning is done in mason glass jars with seals and rings. Safely and properly sealed jars keep for a very long time at room temperature, but if you use oil you will need to pressure can.
