Looks good. It will be interesting to hear if canning them intensify’s Or decreases the “heat” level of the peppers. Also has me wondering how they would be if you cold smoked them before canning.
Thank you. I've done these before. They retain the heat level. Which isn't that bad to begin with. I've done this with unseeded jalapenos. They were hot. But with a pickled flavor. Good enough. But I prefer a milder heat.

Thanks Ryan we use both. Thanks for pointing that out. Still not sure how I missed this attachment even existing lol
We just got one recently when I started doing SmokinAl SmokinAl s pickles, works great! If you get one leave enough head room in the jars so you don't suck up any liquid, also just the flat on top not the ring to vac...don't ask how I know!

And never use it without the lid on the jar. Don't ask me how I know that!

Nice, can't wait for my habaneros to grow in. You said this method is not shelf stable? why nit? and what do you have to make the shelf stable?

To be shelf stable. Then they will need to go through a actual canning process with the hot bath/hold time. Though with fridge pickles and such. They will last for up to a year in the fridge.

OK, so If I used the vacuum sealer on the mason jars it is still not shelf stable?

well it seems the large mouth jar vac sealer attachment is out of stock everywhere so I guess I will have to do it the old fashioned way and wait for them to be ready. How long do you think to pickle sliced habeneros?

That is correct. It just speeds up the pickling process. And it'll help keep other foods fresh longer.
