Sweet (and Spicy) Banana Peppers

I love those sandwich peppers that you can get at good sub shops. Sweet and just a hint of spicy.  So since I had a pretty good amount of peppers to play with I decided to try my hand at canning a few jars. It was really simple and easy to do, which rates high in my little world!  I ended up making a few jars of Sweet Banana Peppers, some Sweet and Spicy Banana peppers, and a Habanero Mix while I was at it.  

I promised I would share the recipe for the Sweet Banana Pepper Rings with ya'll so here we go.  

Sweet Pickled Banana Peppers (2 pints)

1 lb Banana peppers- seeded and sliced into rings
4 cups white vinegar
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed

Sterilize your jars and warm your lids.  
Bring the vinegar, sugar, mustard seed and celery seed to a rolling boil. Pack pepper rings into your jars and pour mixture into jar leaving a 1/2" head space. Clean rim's of jar and put on your rings.  Process in a Water Bath for 10 minutes. Let sit for at least 2 weeks.
If you want to "spice" them up for a Sweet and Spicy Pickled Pepper, Just add a few jalapeno's or other hot pepper to the mix.
