Grandma's Green Pepper Pickles

These are what my husband, and for that matter most of his family call Grandma’s green pepper pickles. They all say that it taste like what she used to make. I have no idea, I don’t eat peppers, I like the flavor but don’t eat’em (I know I am weird). But I thought I would share this with you all, since it is green pepper time. They eat them plain or on sandwhiches. Enjoy!
