    Does anyone on the board know how to make and can pepperchini (sp).  We just love these little peppers on our sandwiches, and I would love to make them at home.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks GailSmile

    Hi Gail~I don't know how to do any canning type stuff, but I googled and here are the some sites.  Hope it helps.





    Pickling pepperoncini?

    Anyone out there have a recipe for pickling pepperoncini?
    I love them and planted them in my garden and although they are great 
    fresh, those canned ones are heaven, and I have not been able to find 
    a recipe - and I fear that frost is soon to be here :-(

    Here is a recipe adapted from a great(!) book by Sue Dremann called "Peppers: Pickled, Sauces, and Salsas". I have not tried this particular recipe (it looks rather basic), however, I've only had good success from this book so far. I will not go into pickling basics or good practices. Here is the recipe:

    15-25 green Pepperoncini peppers, or however many will fit in your jar!
    2 1/2 cups vinegar (white is best)
    1 tsp salt
    Heat the vinegar together with the salt in a saucepan.  *** each pepper
    once or twice.  Put the peppers in a
    sterilized quart jar and pour the hot vinegar mixture over them to fill
    within 1/2 inch
    of the top.  Seal with the ring and top, then process 10 minutes 
    in a boiling water bath.

    I would also add that adding perhaps a 1/4 teaspoon of mexican oregano (or herb of your choice) may add some extra favor to your final product.

    The above recipe is from here: http://members.tripod.com/~garychilli/pickling.htm

    We grew these one year and pickled them but now I can't find the plants anywhere. Very frustrating. I end up buying the ones from the grocery.
