1 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
4 tsp liquid honey
2 tsp pickling spice
1/2 tsp pickling salt
2 cloves garlic, halved
1/2 lb hot peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
Combine vinegar, water, honey, spice and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Into hot sterilized jars, place one-half clove garlic into each of 2 half-pint jars. Divide peppers between jars. Top with other half clove of garlic. Return pickling liquid to a boil and pour over peppers to within 1/2 " headspace. Remove air bubbles. Readjust head space. Process for 10 minutes for half pints and 15 minutes for pints.
Recipe may be doubled. The above makes 2 half pint jars.
