  1. This year was a fantastic pepper year for my garden, I always use my green bell peppers in stewed tomatoes with celery and onions. My colored bell peppers are used for salsa’s and relishes, however this year I have an over abundance of all my bell peppers so I decided to can just roasted peppers. I looked all day yesterday for a good recipe, every recipe said must be done in a pressure cooker to be safe, (after all these years I am still leery about using one). I found your recipe last night and thought it was perfect, so I want to double check and make sure this recipe is SAFE in a water bath.

  2. Hello, Will you please respond to Debbie, below, regarding the assurance that this method is safe (without using any acidity like vinegar) and to use in a water bath canner verses a pressurized canner. I have read several other recipes and repeatedly read where they said it could not be done. I thank you for your understanding and just want to make sure I understood correctly. Thanks so much!
