Pickled peppers recipe, using jalapenos will give you a mighty hot product! Heat intensity can be adjusted by mixing a blend of part hot and part mild peppers. More hot peppers you use will result in a hotter product.
Recipe is the same no matter what type of pepper you are preserving. Banana peppers, chilies, or jalapeno will all work.
This can be processed safely in a Water Bath Canner
Start by preparing jars,and get water in your canner
(see Water Bath Canning for full directions)
Gather your canning supplies
4 lbs hot long red, green, or yellow peppers
You can leave your peppers whole, or if you have larger peppers, you can quarter or halve.
Remove cores and seeds. I do this by cutting of the top, if needed slice down the side, and then pulling out the centers with my hands (don't forget the gloves!)
Next, you'll want to remove the skins from some larger or tough skinned peppers. Flatten whole larger peppers like Anaheim. Cut down one side and open up the pepper. Cut 3-4 slits through the skin of each pepper and heat blister the skins.
Arrange peppers in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place under the broiler for 6-10 minutes.
Check them and rotate the done peppers with the ones on the edges. The centered peppers always get done sooner.When you see the skins blister and blacken, they are done.
Remove the peppers from the oven and place in a pan and cover with a damp cloth or a lid. This keeps them moist and will steam the peppers, making them easier to peel. Let them steam for 5-10 minutes.
Peel each pepper. If they have steamed well the skins should peel back easily. If not cover them again and allow them to steam for a few more minutes.
Pack in jars loosely.
Combine and heat other ingredients to boiling and simmer 10 minutes.
Remove garlic. Add hot pickling solution over peppers, leaving 1/2-inch head space.
Wipe the rims clean, remove any air bubbles and place your lids. Pack and Process according to water bath canning instructions.
is for elevation of 1000 feet or less. Don't forget to adjust your time for
your altitude. Process these in pints. Quarts are not recommended.
Process pickled peppers in pints or half pints 10 minutes below 1000 feet.
Process 15 minutes if you are between 1000 - 6000 feet
Process 20 minutes if you are above 6000 feet.
For more information on why your altitude is important see this altitude adjustments page.

Pickled Jalapeño Peppers, one jar recipe?
I was looking for a recipe for pickled jalapeño peppers but was unable to find one for a "one jar" recipe.
I have a 12oz jar I will be using to try my first pickling pepper experience and I was hoping you may have a recipe for me to use. Any help on instructions would be great as well.
I am thinking of starting a hobby with this and your website has helped a bunch! thanks
What you could do is prepare your peppers like the directions say and fill your one jar. Then prepare the vinegar solution. Simply cut back on the quantity needed for the whole recipe.
You'll have to estimate the amount of liquid you need for the one jar with the amount that the whole batch will make. Does that make sense? In other words, if you have enough peppers for one pint jar and the recipe makes enough pickling liquid for 4 pint jars cut the recipe in 1/4.
Then if you want to store it on the shelf you'll need to go ahead and process for the full time recommended. Don't cut the time back.
If you want to keep it in your fridge there is no reason to process. You can just keep it in the fridge for several days to a couple of weeks to give it a chance to pickle and then enjoy.
When you are pickling jalapeños skinning the jalapeño is optional. I'd probably not skin them. But be sure and take off the stem and seeds. (wear gloves)
