    Use gloves (YES make sure you use them, the first year I made these I didn't and holy crap my hand were on fire lol) Trim off stems and ends shake out most seeds and slice banana peppers into 1/4 and 1/2 " rings. You can also use an assortment of hot peppers for this recipe as well, I only use banana peppers.
