Sweet Salad Peppers

These pepper strips are great on a relish tray or a sandwich. I now add Pickle Crisp to each jar for extra crispness. Great way to preserve bell peppers!

    Just a question, Dede! I love the looks of this marinated salad, and it sounds scrumptious. However, I am diabetic – don’t use sugar. I haven’t tried it yet with a bunch of Equal, and I wondered if anyone else has?

    Question: What is Pickle Crisp??


  3. 5-5

    Mafong – Pickle Crisp is the name of food grade calcium chloride which was sold by the Ball/Jardin company until about a year and a half ago. Have heard it is back and on the shelf in some areas. Calcium chloride is found in many, many commercial foods as a firming agent. It makes home-pickled goodies crisper and home canned tomatoes firmer. I love it! You can also buy calcium chloride in bulk online.
