  1. Used this recipe last year and pulled out a jar today and they is black spots throughout the jar. They tend to float to the top. Is this normal?

    1. Hi Tonya,it sounds like the jars were not sealed correctly and the black spots are likely to be mould. Do not eat if that is the case.

  2. Hi I was wondering what the difference is between pickling salt and regular salt? I don’t have pickling salt could I use regular salt instead?

    1. Hi Tiffany, pickling salt doesn’t contain additives which regular salt does. Because of this, the liquid in pickling will be clear as opposed to cloudy.
      It is still safe to use regular salt for pickling but the quality of the pickles may not be as good due to the impurities in regular salt. Hope that helps!

  3. First time canning banana peppers. They turned out great. I made three batches because I had picked every banana pepper I had today. Next time I will def use the pickle crisp another reader recommended for crunchy banana peppers.

    Can someone tell me what the oil in canned peppers is for. I slice jalapeno peppers and add the dill and garlic. But I have seen other recipes that call for oil. I’m just curious as to what it is for.

    1. Hi Libby, the oil acts like a brine or preserving agent when canning, you know like you can often get sun dried tomatoes in oil, or sometimes olives in jars with either oil or a salt based water. It’s just another way some people use to preserve the food, then the oil is sometimes also used in cooking things as it will have extra flavour. Hope this helps!
