Pickled Hot Peppers

4 pounds hot, long red, green or yellow peppers
3 pounds red or green bell peppers or combination, cut into strips
5 cups white vinegar (labeled 5% acidity)
1 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons pickling salt
2 cloves garlic

Wear rubber or plastic gloves when handling hot peppers.

Wash peppers. Cut 2 to 4 small slits in each hot pepper. Blanch
hot peppers in boiling water for 3 minutes. Cool in ice water.
Drain well. Flatten hot peppers with a wooden spoon.

In a 6 quart saucepan, combine all remaining ingredients, except
bell peppers. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 10
minutes. Firmly fill hot pint jars with flattened hot peppers and
bell pepper strips, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Fill hot jars with
vinegar mixture, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove garlic, if
desired. Carefully run a nonmetallic utensil down inside of jare
to remove trapped air bubbles. Wipe jar tops and threads clean.
Place hot lids on jars and apply screw bands. Process in boiling
water canner for 10 minutes. Yield: approx. 12 pints.

I have used the basic recipe here for all kinds of peppers. You
don't have to use the combination suggested. I have also made sliced
pepper rings, instead of pickling whole. For whole peppers you
need to blanch, but with sliced rings I raw pack into jars and pour
the boiling brine over them and then proceed with boiling water
