I just planted my pepper seeds today. The main reason I grow peppers is because DH LOVES pickled peppers. He especially likes Mezzetta's Sweet Cherry Peppers. I've never been able to duplicate their recipe so I keep trying new recipes:) Does anyone here have a favorite pickled pepper recipe?

I do! Smiling

This recipe came from fiery-foods.com :

Pickled Peppers

3 pounds peppers
6 cups water, for brine
1 1/2 cups pickling salt, for brine
3 cups water, for canning
3 cups vinegar, for canning
3 teaspoons pickling salt, for canning

Mix salt and water for brine and cover the peppers with the mixture. Place a plate on top to keep peppers submerged. Soak overnight to crisp the peppers. Drain, rinse well and dry.

Pack peppers into sterilized jars leaving 1/4 inch of headroom. Combine the water, vinegar and salt and bring to a boil. Pour over the peppers, leaving no head space. Remove trapped air bubbles. Store for 4-6 weeks in a cool, dark place before serving.

Can use whole smaller peppers (poke a couple of holes in them to allow pickling solution to penetrate) or cut up larger peppers.

Yields about 4 pints.

Notes:
Hot banana pepper rings and pepperoncini peppers work especially well;
consider adding a little turmeric for better color.
Ripe (red) peppers tend to come out soft instead of crisp.

You can google Pickled Cherry pepper recipes. Most of them will be similar to weed whacker's recipe. Basic differences are in the different spices added. Many specify white vinegar, some use oregano, some use garlic, some use bay leaves. You would need to start with a basic recipe and add other spices as you search for an approximation of Mezzetta's recipe. The ingredients list may give you a clue.

Thanks for the advice! I have several recipes (most from Google or various other internet sources) but I'm always looking for someone else's "special take" or personal opinion:)
