I had been wanting to make peppers for when we have guests over for salad. These were on sale, so I picked up a bag. I added garlic to the jar. These have been a great hit with the guys. They do taste different then banana peppers, so they are a nice suprise. My daughters has a couple of jalapeno plants, we are hoping to be able to pickle some soon. Actually, we are like vultures waiting for them to ripen.
