Peppers are a low-acid food, so to safely home can them, you will either need both a lab-tested recipe and either a Pressure Canner (for non-pickled recipes) or a water-bath canner (for pickled pepper recipes). The canning processprevents potential spoilage and food poisoning, I've noted which type of canner to use with each recipe below.

Home Canning Kits
This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to
make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and
spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts
for years: the canner, jar rack, Jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a
plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer, and the bible of canning, the Ball
Blue Book. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You will never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)!
There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a Pressure Canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes). To see more canners, of different styles, makes and prices, click here!
