  • Sterilize the jars and preheat the oven to 215 °F. Wash the jars and lids and place them in the oven for about 15 minutes or until completely dry. With the help of a canning funnel, place peppers into jars, while they are still hot.
  • Close all lids very tightly. Flip them upside down and keep it for several hours; this process helps seal the lid. Store in a cool place. They can be stored up to a year.
