Dave says he's been making these peppers for 10 years now and just loves them.

With the salt taking the moisture out on the first day, the vinegar replacing the natural juices and bringing up the pH, these may very well be safe but this recipe hasn't been verified as being safe. We've made this recipe, but we keep it in the fridge for added safety. These are fantastic when added to a sandwich!

1-4 litre basket of peppers makes two 1-pint jars
1 bushel will yield 20-22 1-pint jars
