I first had these when I was a nurse in CCU.
Make them as soon as the peppers are either big enough to pick yourself or are available at a Farmer's Market! Eat them for the holidays to get the best taste! :)
And the picture is not mine...it came from google. :)

  • 1PREP:
    Cut the tops off the peppers and remove the seeds.
    Mix your "brine" up and bring to a boil. It should be good and clear.
    Have your lids in hot water and bring your water to boil in the stock pot or canning bath.
  • 2Directions:
    Stuff the peppers full with sauerkraut.
    Pack the stuffed peppers tightly in the jars.
    Put 1 tablespoon minced garlic in each jar.
    Pour brine, leaving at least 1/4-1/2 inch space at top of jar.
    Place the lids on top and hand tighten the rings.
