Spent pretty much all day mucking about in the kitchen with peppers. Learned a lot. Nearly ruined all those lovely jalapenos. Sliced them too thin and cooked them too long. The banana peppers went a bit better. I swear I crammed those in there until I could cram them no more and they still turned out looking like bottled vinegar with a few peppers floating about. The jalapenos were even worse, I started with 8 pints. When I finally pulled them out of the canner I thought no way am I going to take a picture of these. Opened all 8 jars and spooned the peppers into 3. Ran another sealing cycle on those 3 and another jar half full of little but whole peppers. Sigh.
Go ahead and laugh, enjoy!
