Sweet Peppers...will taste pretty darn good on My Gardner's Guy sandwiches
Sweet Peppers....I love sub sandwiches with lots of sweet peppers. You know the kind they have on a Blimpie Sub. I love..love..love them!!!
I am so excited this year the peppers in our garden are doing great. We have so many that I am buried. With my kitchen being under construction I have put off my canning. In fact yesterday I visited 10 neighbors and gave away lots of goodies I would normally bottle...
I couldn't take it any longer and this morning I headed up the street to borrow a kitchen to do some canning. After all how could I let these beautiful peppers not be preserved!!!
Sweet Sandwich Peppers
These pepper strips are great on a relish tray or a sandwich. Great way to preserve bell peppers!

Core, seed and cut peppers into 1/4″ to 1/2″ strips.
Place pepper strips into hot pint jars.
Add 1/4 tsp oil and 1/2 tsp. salt to each jar.
In a large saucepan, stir Splenda or sugar into vinegar and water.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Pour hot syrup into jars over peppers; fill to 1/2″ from top of jar.
