We Are In Tabasco Pepper Heaven

Our tabasco peppers plants are bursting with peppers!  Ran loves spicy spicy foods, and since I don't want all of these lovely peppers to go to waste, Pepper Sauce it is!

I had to show off my rain boots!  I love them!

Wash the peppers and trim the stems.

Wash and sterilize your jars.

I was very optimistic.  I was sure that these bottles would soon be filled with peppery goodness.

Not so much...

Add fresh garlic and peppercorns to the jars.  I used a lot of garlic, 7-10 cloves.  We like garlic a lot around here.  

Put the peppers in the jars.  My husband eats the peppers as well as the spicy vinegar sauce, so I used jars that would make the peppers easy for him to access.

Bring white vinegar (or apple cider vinegar) to a boil with 1-2 tsp of salt, depending on how much you are canning.  Allow the vinegar to cool and pour over the peppers and garlic.

I had to fill my teeny baby jar...too cute!

I love the colors, all red and yellow and green!

This was the first batch.  I really thought the peppers would fill these bottles to capacity!

Here are my finished peppers!

And, here's take 2 after my dad brought me the tabasco peppers from his yard!

I just couldn't get enough of these fragrant peppers!  I love preserving the harvest!!
