I have made this recipe for the past 3 canning seasons, canning more each season. My family loves it and we never seem to have enough to last until next canning season. We eat these peppers on sandwiches, hotdogs, and hamburgs. My son also cuts them up and uses them for appetizers on a vegetable plate.
