I want to can stuffed sweet peppers. Why can't I put the cooked stuffing before I put into a raw sweet pepper and put the pepper in a jar? Pressure canning it at 10# for 90 minutes should be OK I would think.

Please, don't imagine. Go to http://www freshpreserving.com which is the Ball site. At the bottom of the page, there is a "contact us." You can email them with specific questions.
I agree with fezziwig about contacting ttp://www.freshpreserving.com This is not something to mess around with! Get professional advice!
Also check out http://www.uga.edu/nchfp Read what they say and contact them, too, as a second professional opinion!
Is there a reason you can't just freeze them? Seems that would be much easier.
I have found over the years that Ball doesn't list a bunch of perfectly safe things. I talked to Jackie from North Woods Home. She has canning her stuffed peppers for years because she lives "off grid" and has never had a problem. I used my normal recipe and they turned out fine. Frozen peppers are always bitter. I do freeze some chopped to toss int hot dishes once in awhile. I pressured cooked them for 90 minutes at 10# and am not concerned at all. There are a lot of canning recipes that Ball doesn't have.
