  1. Place the sausages into a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes, poking sausages with a sharp fork to release fat. Drain and rinse the sausages.
  2. Place the sausages into a 1-quart glass canning jar.
  3. Pour white vinegar and water into a saucepan, and stir in the pickling salt, pickling spice, mustard seeds, celery seeds, dill seeds, onion slices, garlic, black peppercorns, and banana pepper rings.
  4. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Pour the vinegar mixture over the sausages in the jar; cap the jar, and refrigerate at least 3 days before serving.


  • Cook's Note
  • For making pickled eggs, use 12 hard-cooked eggs instead of sausages. Place onion and garlic into a 1-quart glass canning jar, top with peeled eggs, and continue with recipe.
