Reviews for Pickled Sweet Peppers
"This recipe is very special to me- We used this recipe the first time my husband and I ever canned anything- EASY and nothing compares or come close to how good these taste! Everyone thought we were canning pros! PERFECTION! We sat by the pool and ate these right out of the jar!"
"Hi Broberts, the oil gets distributed among the jars. It's listed in the last sentence of the first step."
"What are you supposed to do with the canola oil?"
