Pickled Banana Peppers


My two daughters absolutely LOVE pickled banana peppers (I'm not a huge fan but I'll eat 'em on a sandwich or something), I've seen my oldest daughter when she was 10 or 11 years old sit and eat half a jar of them straight out of the jar... I don't know if she still eats them like that or not but I know she still loves them. My younger daughter is almost as passionate about them... so, being the doting mother that I am, and having a bounty of banana peppers, I made a few jars for the girls.

Here's how I did it...

I cut the stem ends off my banana peppers and scooped the seeds out, trying my very best to keep the peppers intact so I could then slice them into rings (they like the rings!)

Then I prepared the brine by mixing

5 cups vinegar (I used white, because the peppers were so lovely and colorful I wanted them to shine through)


1 cup water
4 teaspoons canning and pickling salt


2 Tablespoons sugar
2 cloves garlic (OK, I like the added garlic flavor, so I put in 4 cloves)


I brought the vinegar mixture to a boil, then reduced the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to marry and blend... then I removed the garlic cloves. Meanwhile, I prepared my pint canning jars by placing them in a flat pan of boiling water set over two stove eyes. I simmered the lids in boiling water and kept everything hot until I was ready for them.


I loosely packed the banana pepper rings in the hot pint jars.


I ladled the hot brine mixture into the jars, filling the jars and removing any air bubbles... leaving a half inch headspace.

I wiped the rims and tightened the lids on to fingertip tightness.

I processed the jars in a boiling water bath, ensuring they were completely covered with boiling water and processing for 10 minutes.

After processing, I removed the jars with my jar lifter and set them on a folded dish towel on the counter to cool... and to listen for the PING of each successfully sealed jar.


Oh, yeah, the girls are gonna LOVE these!

  8. I just made a batch of these yummy things and its my first attempt to can anything so here it goes! I actually used some peppers I had been harvesting, cleaning and freezing over this past 2 weeks so I could do this with them and they seemed to do really well in the process. Your way of explaining it made it easy and feel like my Great Grandmas were standing in the kitchen teaching me and they would be so proud! I am bringing homesteading back like so many! Thank you for your site!!! I too wanna know how long it needs to sure before trying it or giving it as a gift?

  12. Hi Granny,
    It is great to find your site. I have been canning about 2 years now. I have done all kinds of jams and jellies. They all are great except the stawberry jam. I just can not get the jam firm once set. We use it over ice cream or in cottage cheese. We are getting a lot of banana peppers this year and needed a great way to can them without have to have a bushel. 2 or 3 pounds I can handle out of our small garden. I will be trying this in the next day or two. I have put up dill pickles, corn, dried beans and green beans as well. Oh, tomatos and sauce as well. I get them by the case at the flea market when in season. Once you have had home canned it is hard to go back to store bought. Thanks again for your site. I will be visiting often.

    1. I just made strawberry jam and the only batch out of three that thickened enough was made with pectin and i boiled it for 45 minutes while stirring. Recipe said to boil for 1 minute but i kept boiling to consistancy! Also I love this pepper recipe! Its easy and effective :)

      Delete
    2. I make freezer jam with my strawberries and have nice thick jam instead of the traditional more "runny" jam. I got my recipe from an amish cookbook and have had great success with it and everybody raves over it and it is sooooooo easy. 4 C Strawberries, mashed (I run mine through the blender) 4 C white sugar (I have used as little as 2 1/2 depending on your tastes) and 1/3 C plus 2 T instant clear jel (I find mine at the local bulk food stores) Mix clear jel and sugar well. Add strawberries and stir until sugar is dissolved. Put into containers and freeze. So easy and quick and turns out great. I have tested boiling a batch verses not boiling and I actually like the non-boiled out of the freezer better so I have stuck with the original recipe and it has saved me time! Hope this helps with next years batch if you get this. :) I am getting ready to try this pepper recipe and doing some hot pepper butter or pepper jelly??

  14. Do the banana peppers that you use have a little hottness to them, like the ones they use at Subway sandwich shops? I was hoping to try to make some like that but I grew some banana peppers and they seem very mild. Do you know how to make them hotter? Thanks!

  16. Do You have to use the Garlic

    ReplyDelete
  17. DONT BOIL YOUR LIDS!! They changed what they use to seal around the edge and several of my friends have lost HUGE amounts of their vegetables and such. It is definately beneficial to put them in warm tap water though. The boiling heat breaks down the polymer they use though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. if you wait until the very end and bring it to a boil you can pour it over the peppers and put the lids and rings on and they should seal up. I have only had one not seal up for me last year and I think it was just because I had some stuff I didnt get wiped off the rim before I put the lid on.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Some of my banana peppers have turned to a purplish color on them. Is this okay? Also, can I substitute hot peppers and can them the same way? I have a TON of hot peppers on 6 plants. I never expected so much!

  22. I followed this recipe exactly. Three questions for you.
    1st - When I put the jars into the boiling water bath, I noticed 2 jars that started letting bubbles out, indicating to me that I did not hand tighten the rings enough. So I grabbed them out of the water and tightened them a little more, and quickly got them back in the water. Will this affect anything?
    2nd - I forgot to remove air bubbles in one jar. Will this hurt anything?
    3rd - All my jars sealed & look beautiful just like yours, however, the one jar does not have the inch or so of brine by itself at the bottom, with the peppers at the top (as pictured). They seemed to have evenly distributed themselve throughout the jar. Is there a reason for this?
    Thanks for your help! I canned 12 pints of hot peppers & banana peppers! My daughter was so excited we did it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yay! Sounds like you did great!
      1. No nothing bad will happen from tightening the jars.
      2. You may have a little more headspace once all the bubbles make it to the top (and they will) but it won't hurt a thing.
      3. Evenly distributed is a GOOD thing! It's what I aim for and rarely achieve! They may move around and you may get the liquid in the bottom later, but no worries!

  26. I am new at canning, this will be my first try, could you explain how the boiling water bath works? Do we boil the water then remove from heat before putting jars in?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To process your jars in a boiling water bath, you start with pouring hot water into your canner (or large pot) several inches deep... then place your filled jars into the canner... the water needs to be about an inch over the top of the jars. If it's not there once you have added all your jars, add more water. Then bring it to a boil with the jars inside and a lid on top. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat so it boils more gently for the time required. Once the processing time has finished, turn the heat under the canner off... wait about 5 minutes and remove the jars from the canner (using a jar lifter if you have one, if not, some people use tongs, just be careful not to burn yourself) Set the jars on a rack, folded dish towel or something on the counter to cool and to seal.

  30. Hi- I am trying canning for the first time. Is there a way to can without the jar lifter, canning equipment, etc.? I was hoping to use a large stock pot and some tongs. I purchased 8 oz. crystal jelly jars with lids and bands. After reading through the comments, I am wondering if my equipment choices are going to work. I have a small garden and am canning my banana peppers and red peppers. Any advice?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You certainly can get started using a large stock pot and tongs. You do need some sort of rack in the bottom of your pot to keep the jars just off the bottom of the pot... you can make one yourself using canning jar lids (just the bands, not the flat part), twist tie enough together to fit inside the bottom of your pot and you're good to go. With this setup you may can any high acid food in your boiling water bath... these items include tomatoes, most fruits, jams and jellies, pickles and relishes. Great for a start to canning. When you are ready to move on to low acid foods (most veggies, meats, soups and stews), you will have to use a pressure canner. Have fun and good luck! ~~Granny

  31. We made a run of these recently (July 2012) because we had so many banana peppers and fake jalapeno peppers. We added some peppercorns to the brine and more than two cloves of garlic. We also added pickle crisp to each jar (when you add pickle crisp you have to add less salt to the recipe). We didn't cover jars with water when we processed we just put a little bit of water (about two inches up on each pint jar) in the pot. We tasted them about three weeks later (we couldn't wait any longer) and they were awesome. They were actually crisp!!! Everyone that tried them loved them. They were so great that we are doing another run today (August 25, 2012). Thanks for the recipe! Happy Canning All!!!!

  34. My pot wasn't big enough to cover my pint jars completely with water during processing. About an inch short. Does this matter?

    Also, just noticed someone said not to boil the lids. I did...oops. We'll find out in a couple weeks if that matters or not.

    Thanks for the recipe.

  37. You are awesome. I was prepairing to start my banana peppers but didn't have the jars yet. I made a rough version of your recipe using straight vinegar and placed them in an old pickel jar in the fridge for a few days until I got the jars, hoping they would stop turning colors. To my surprise they tasted amazing and were as crisp as if they were just picked from the plant. I would think they wouldn't last very long that way but I suppose if you ate them soon it could work for the crisping effect. Any advice on this idea?! Thank you so much for your advice, I canned my entire first batch of about 6 different peppers today! I can't wait!

    1. Actually they would probably last quite a while just doing exactly what you did... my brother usually just pours hot vinegar over his, seals the jars and that's it and his pickled peppers are yummy. It's not an "approved" method, but it's tasty! ~~Granny

  64. Hi there, thanks for sharing your recipe. I have two questions, sorry I'm very new to all this. First, The canning jars I have, don't have the rubber seals, they just have the lids and jars. Can I still use them? Secondly, when you say a hot water bath should cover the bottles completely, do you mean the water should go over the top of the jars, or just to the point of where the liquid and peppers stop? Thanks so much again for any help you can give.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Despite using alum, my peppers came up mushy. I believe I ended up using 1/8 tsp in the hot brine.

    However, the mushy peppers weren't floating as if the jar had been properly sealed (the other pints of banana peppers do). (The lid had sealed, though.)

    Something else that might have had an effect on this is that I didn't keep the jar in a cool and dark area for a full two weeks.
