2 (14 ounce) packages
little smoked sausages
1 1/2 cups
distilled white vinegar
pickling spice, or more to taste
whole mustard seeds
onion, thickly sliced
garlic, minced, or to taste
whole black peppercorns
pickled banana pepper rings
I want to make pickled sausages like the Penrose brand or a Louisianan brand.
I’m not a beginner I’ve been canning and pickling since the late “70’s”. I’ve pickled eggs, beets, green tomatoes, okra etc. I’ve made this recipe twice and there is no way two 14 ounce packages will fit in a quart jar let alone with onion and banana peppers. The 1st time I followed it exactly and I thought it had way to much spice and the Little Smokies’ shouldn’t be boiled they are a fully cooked product. The second time I didn’t boil them and I cut all spices in ½ added 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 6 whole garlic cloves, left out the pepper rings. This time they are edible but get a little better now that they have set for a week. I will keep trying to get the recipe I want but this is not it – too many flavors going on and non of it is the sausage. Sorry to poster and thanks for sharing this recipe.

OK, but I won't make these again. Guys at work didn't care much for them either...
