If I plant jalapeno pepper plants, I will get jalapeno peppers.
Just like the commercial producers.  If I buy a jar of jalapenos at the
store, I get sliced jalapenos ready to put on my sandwich and pizza.
What happens in between the plant and the jar?  Is this something I
could do at home with minimal equipment?


My SIL canned some one year but it has been years ago.  If I remember
correctly there is a possible problem with food poisoning if not done
correctly.  I would recommend a good current canning guide (Ball Bluebook or
something similar) or a visit to your area Extension Home Economist.
