Have a recipe for canning marinated roasted sweet peppers?

I would love to can some of my peppers both red and green. Does anyone have a recipe to share?

This is from my favorite book on food preservation,called "Well Preserved" by Eugenia Bone.

4 pounds peppers
1 cup bottled lemon juice
2 cups white wine veingar (5% acidity)
1 cup olive oil
2 medium garlic cloves, sliced (about 1 tablespoon)
1.5 teaspoons salt

Char broil peppers in broiler (about 7 inches from heat), turning often so that they blister all over, about 20 minutes.
Let peppers stand until cool enough to handle. Remove charred skin, cut peppers in half, and remove seed pods.

Combine lemon juice, vinegar, oil, garlic, and salt in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, just to boiling

Have ready 3 scalded jars/bands. (simmer new lids in small pan of water to soften flange)

Pack peppers into jars and pour marinade over them. Using butter knife, pop any air bubbles in the jars. See that the garlic slices are evenly distributed. Leave 1/2-3/4" headspace in jars.

Wipe rims, place lids, screw on bands until fingertip tight.

Process peppers in boiling bath for 15 minutes. Turn off heat and allow jars to sit in the water for 5 minutes, then remove jars and let them rest for 4-5 hours. Check seals and store in a cool, dry place for up to a year!

I haven't tried this recipe yet... but probably will in a week or so when my banana pepper plant is ready!

That sounds like a great recipe. I had always heard it wasn't safe to use oil in canning. Have you heard anything like that? Thanks for the recipe.

I've never had a problem - i think with the vinegar the acid will be high enough. I also have a great recipe for marinated artichoke hearts that uses lemon juice and olive oil -- delish...

This sounds great ~ I hope to try it next summer.

Is the time correct tho?

seems too long, I'd think it would cook them to mush. Kristi

Adding that I need to look for that book. I am a cookbook/plantbook junkie. LOL

Also if I can add, I think the problem with oil in canned goods in to be sure to keep the jar rims free of oil so they will seal.
I've canned meats in the past and there is always excess fats that cook out so I don't think it is an issue. JMO Kristi
