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.
I would like to know if anyone knows how to fry down green peppers and can them?

I don't know about canning them but I'd just freeze them.

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. This is a page about how to can jalapeño peppers.

I need a recipe for canning mild or sweet peppers. I have four plants and I have a lot of peppers. They are the long sweet peppers.

Here is a recipe I got from a girl I work with. I have never made this, but she gave me a jar she made and it was outstanding. You can make it hot or mild depending on what type of pepper(s) you use. It makes a chunky jardinere that's excellent on a beef sandwich.
She weighs it down by putting a plate on top and then uses a brick to hold it down. (06/20/2008)
I can peppers every year and I always use the same recipe for all peppers sweet or hot. I'm doing banana peppers now.
Put the peppers in hot jars. Boil water, vinegar, and salt for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring. Pour over the peppers and seal. (09/05/2008)
I grate cabbage, put oil and salt in and also grated onion. Stuff Banana peppers. Put in jars and make a brine of 1 part vinegar and two parts water. Put in a pan of very hot water and leave until water cools. Put one clove of garlic in. This is also good if you put in a hot pepper. (09/08/2008)
