Here is a pickled pepper recipe. Decorate the jars and put
your own label on them for unique holiday gifts.


Using fresh Jalapeno peppers, blanch peppers for 3 minutes in 
boiling water. To prevent collapsing, puncture each pepper. 
Add the following ingredients to a pint jar packed with the 
blanched peppers before cooling occurs.

1/4 medium-sized garlic clove 
1/4 teaspoon of onion flakes 
1 small or medium bay leaf 
1/8 teaspoon of ground oregano 
1/8 teaspoon of thyme leaf (not seed) 
1/8 teaspoon of marjoram

Cover with boiling brine solution prepared as follows:

Mix together:

3 tablespoons sugar 
9 tablespoons salt 
2 pints water 
2 pints vinegar (5 percent) 

Close the containers and process 10 minutes in boiling water,
then cool. Note: Jalapenos must be hot when brine solution is 
added. The addition of carrot slices adds color to the product.
