    Default canned bell peppers

    Hello everybody
    I read here a lot but rarely post, but now I have a slight problem,I
    pressured canned bell peppers in 1/2 pt. jelly jars but I forgot to add
    any vinegar as the blue book says to. So how much of a sin did I
    commit? can they still be used? When I realized what I did while they
    were cooking so I processed them about 10 minutes longer than they said
    too.

    It depends upon how long you processed the peppers Dave. Here's the URL
    for instructions on canning peppers in a pressure canner.

    The recipe doesn't call for vinegar, only water. Using the proper
    processing time is critical for your health. Hope this helps.
