Modifying tested recipes
This is my first time posting on this forum. I hang out on gardenweb's hot pepper forum a lot and have some canning questions. Ajsmama recommended that I ask them on this forum from now on so here goes. I am new to pickling peppers I have only attempted two batches and I would like to get into jams and jellies as well. The first two batches I attempted I did not follow a tested recipe, I just copied someone on you tube. They turned out fine and no one got sick, but I would like to follow recommended recipes from now on. However, all the recommended recipes seem kind of boring. My question is if I add sugar to a recipe for pickled peppers will that change the pH, and if so by how much? I have attached a tested recipe and would like to add sugar to it, is it safe to do?
Here is a link that might be useful: pickled peppers
