Here is an old family recipe for pickled hot peppers.
This recipe is per pint. Double the recipe for each quart.
1/2 C. Vinegar
water to fill the rest of the jar after peppers are added.
1 Tsp. Sugar
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1/2 Tsp. Celery Seed
1 Tsp. Mustard Seed
Place sugar and spices in jar bottom. Add sliced hot peppers. Slice in rounds or in half or leave whole and punch a hole in each. Your preference. Add Vinegar and water to fill the rest of the jar. Hot water bath 12 1/2 minutes per pint 25 minutes per quart.
You can experiment with the amount of vinegar and spices you like for your personal taste.

Instead of alum, use some canning lime. Or, get the lime from grape leaves--two big ones per quart placed at the top of the jar so they can be fished out--though they are edible.

My understanding is that alum is really aluminum--maybe in an indigestible form? Anyway, collecting and freezing or drying a few tender grape leaves early in the Summer is not too hard. I don't know if the Southern grapes' leaves work as well--it seems they would, but they are a different shape and a whole different style of grape.

Hi, A suggestion, I would make a long slit in the whole pepper to allow the pickle to enter, I think they would cure better. Love, Missnuggy

Hi Alum is the best but if you can't find it, use pickle crisp.Walmart has it.
Alum can be found at a grocery store in the spice isle.
Enjoy...

Cool, thanks, that is just what I have, banana peppers, though mine are a lot smaller than I thought they would be, so I may leave them whole. I don't have alum, I'll need to get that, good tip, I had never heard of that before

Hi all! I am new this team, but not to SP. I live in the NW burbs of Chicago. I don't do a lot of canning, but I have a killer recipe for pickled beets, an old Swedish recipe which is so simple. Right now I have a ton of hot peppers I would like to pickle, but I am afraid the beet pickle recipe will be too sweet. Appreciate any ideas
