Sweet Pickled Peppers

Recipe yields: 8 – 16 ounce jars

These Pickled Peppers are amazing on sandwiches, steak and cheese subs, and in salads.


  • 1 tablespoon pickling or kosher salt
  • 6 cups cider vinegar
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 4 cups water
  • 6 cups granulated sugar
  • 8-10 cloves garlic smashed
  • ½ tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 4 ½ to 5 pounds red, green, orange peppers sliced ¼-inch
  • 1 large onion halved and sliced thinly


 In a large pot, make the brine. Place the salt, cider and white vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, and
spices in a large pan and bring to a boil over medium to high heat.
 Sterilize your jars in a 16-quart canning pot. Place the sliced peppers and onions into the jars.
Press down to compact and make sure you have plenty of peppers and onions in each jar, as
they will rise up to the surface during the processing.
 Using a wide-mouth funnel, ladle hot pickling brine over top of the peppers and onions, leaving
½-inch head space. Remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rim with a clean, damp paper towel.
Center the lid on the jar. Apply the band until the fit is fingertip tight.
 Place the jars in a water bath and process for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove from
the water bath. Allow to cool completely on the counter for 24 hours. For best flavor, let stand
for 3 to 4 weeks before enjoying. Store the jars in a cool, dry place for up to 1 year.
 Once opened, store in the refrigerator.
