I am a first time gardener and I have have an overabundance of jalapeno and sweet banana peppers. I am looking for a good recipe to can them.
I had the same situation and used a "quick canning" recipe I found on the Food Network site. I was very pleased with the results. I had some red chili peppers and I added a few slices into each jar to give them some "kick" and was very pleased with the results.

Do you boil the vinegar with the banana peppers before you can them?

Hot packing is the most popular method of preserving jalapeño peppers. A hot vinegar and water solution with a bit of salt is added to the jars of whole or sliced peppers.
