Pickled Banana Peppers

Post  NAR56 on 11/5/2015, 9:38 pm

I use the "Pickled Banana Peppers" recipe as a Refrigerator Pickle recipe, but you can boil the jars following normal canning guidelines.


Pickled Banana Peppers

Ingredients


  • 12 lb banana pepper, seeded and sliced across, so you have rings
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 23 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 12 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 12 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large onion, halved and cut into 1-inch slices
  • 6 bay leaves

I also add a table spoon of Minced Garlic.


Directions


  1. Sterilize 2- 1/2 pint jars.
  2. Bring the peppers,vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, celery seed, and remaining ingredients to a rolling boil.
  3. Remove bay leaves unless you prefer to leave in for appearance.
  4. Place peppers in the 1/2 pint jars.
  5. Pour on the pickling juice.
  6. Bring brine to within 1/2" of the top.
  7. Be sure the edge of the jar has no juice on it.
  8. Seal in jars and leave for 2 weeks before opening.**.
  9. **This is an heirloom method no longer recommended by the USDA/NCHFP (National Center For Home Food Preservation). To meet current guidelines, the filled jars should be processed in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes up to 1000 feet in elevation, 15 minutes from 1000 to 6000 feet, and 20 minutes at over 6000 feet.

Thanks, Ryan I will--next year! Unfortunately, I got 3 whole peppers from my plant, and normally these little babies are very productive, not sure what happened. Just failure to launch. Entire plants, both peppers, were just stunted, didn't grow much, didn't flower, it was very strange.

But I will try your recipe for sure, I don't have a canner--yet! But I have a refrigerator!

NAR56,
Are those banana peppers you grew hot?  Mine, which didn't do anything this yr, but, they are yellow when they grow.

I use about the same recipe, minus the sugar and salt. Cook the vinegar and spices for a few min. to sterilize spices? then put peppers, cut into rings, into jars. Pour spicy vinegar over peppers in jar. Put on lid. I use a glass jar with a glass stopper. If you must use a lid that might have metal showing, put a couple layers wax paper between jar and lid to prevent vinegar from eating away at the metal. You don't have to do this if canning or using sugar.

I don't even put in frig. or cook, I just put in jar on table.

This is the fist time I've noticed the yellow banana peppers turning red when left on the plant a long time.  Guess I always picked them earlier in past years.  Or else there is a new variety on the market

Kay, my banana peppers have always turned red but you have to leave them on for a long time.

 My Banana Peppers I planted in the Spring. I usually pick when they are green and they were normal tasting. They stopped producing from July to Sept due to the Heat of Summer. I let the garden go as I though it was done for a while, but then I noticed all these Red peppers on the plants! I picked some for a salad one night and noticed that they were hotter then the ones from the Spring time. Maybe they get hotter when they turn Red or they crossed with something else. Either way they are good to eat!
