Fire-Roasted Pickled Sweet Red Peppers

“This is a recipe for preserving sweet bell peppers after roasting them and some garlic. I like to serve mine chopped on toasted baguette slices with some crumbled feta---yummy and easy appetizer. It makes a smaller batch so you may want to double it if you have a lot of peppers. Recipe from Small-Batch Preserving. (Please use appropriate canning methods.) Added note: This recipe just won 1st prize at the Ventura County Fair!”
4 half pint jars
