I grew banana peppers this year for my husband. He loves the banana peppers that Subway uses on their sandwiches but I don't know if the peppers are just canned or pickled. Does anyone know?  I have never canned anything yet so this will be my first project if I can get it all sorted out. I usually just freeze my vegetables but I might try canning salsa or tomatoe sauce. Thank you for any information...:)

canning pepper rings-the alum keeps the rings crisp, not mushy.

  • 8 pint jars, lids and seals
  • 8 whole garlic cloves (optional)
  • 2 1/2 to 3 lbs. of banana peppers (this is an estimate)
  • 4 tsp. salt (you will use 1/2 tsp. per jar)
  • 4 tsp. alum (optional – 1/2 tsp. per jar) *see my post about alum
  • 7 cups white vinegar (estimate)
  • 7 cups water (estimate)


  1. Prepare jars. I chose to just wash my jars in hot soapy water. I turned my oven on to 175 to put the jars in to keep them warm after washing.
  2. Wash whole banana peppers to remove any dirt. Remove tops from peppers and cut peppers into rings. I cut my rings sort of thick, but you can cut them as thick or thin as you want. Also, de-seed if you choose to de-seed your banana peppers.
  3. In a large pot, combine 7 cups of water and 7 cups of white vinegar. Heat on high until boiling.
  4. At the same time, in a small pot, place jar lids and boil.
  5. Once the jars and lids are boiling, turn on low heat.
  6. Add 1 clove of garlic to empty jar, then pack banana pepper rings tightly into the jar. Add 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. alum to the peppers. Pour hot vinegar-water mixture over the peppers. Immediately put on lid and ring to seal.
  7. Repeat with remaining peppers and jars.

Once the jars start to cool, they will seal.

If you haven't canned much, it's probably not a good idea to jump in with tomatoes--

They can be very tricky--

Subway peppers are pickled--

Good Luck--
