What Are The Best Peppers To Use For Roasted Peppers
Depending on where you live will depend on the type of peppers that you can get in your area. I have found red bell peppers work awesome at making roasted peppers.

You will notice as you can you have flex in the seal of the jar before you place them into the water bath. Once you can and remove from the water that flex will be hardened. You won’t be able to push down the center of the jar and have it make a popping sound.
You can re-can the jar within the first 24 hours if you find a jar or did not seal up properly. Or if you don’t want to re-can just place in the fridge and eat within three weeks.

You are welcome to use any size of jar you would like. The biggest thing is making sure to fill your jars full so they are able to properly seal and will store the longest. So if you want larger jars as you tend to eat a lot in a short time, go ahead and buy bigger jars.
