Default I need canned pimiento recipes... 1 plain and 1 pickled

I've been poking around for ways to can pimiento peppers since I use them in a boatload of recipes. It's getting a little confusing out there for me. I found this site that gives a basic rundown but no recipe pimento | BigOven Food Glossary. I found this recipe that starts out removing the skins the way my MIL does, Making and Canning Pimientoes. CanningUSA.COM - A great place to learn home canning!. This site that did include basic how-tos but got more into varieties, Paleotechnics: Home pepperoncini and pimento recipe. Then there was this recipe that "looked" about right to me, Canned Pimentos Recipe - Food.com - 31185. I'm looking for the recipe that would be most like the jarred pimientos I buy at the store. I've got to do something quick since I've got pimiento peppers comeing out my ears.

Here's a pickled pepper recipe I have used:

peppers (enough to stuff 12 pint jars)
5 cups of white vinegar
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons of sugar
4 teaspons of pickling salt
12 cloves of garlic

Wash the peppers. Slit the sides of the peppers 2 to 4 times, but don't cut the pepper apart. Blanch the peppers in boiling water for 3 minutes. Cool in ice water. Drain well. Flatten the peppers with a wood spoon.

Stuff your jars with the peppers (the same way you stuff cucumbers in a jar for pickles.) Add 1 garlic clove to each jar (onions or shallots work ok too.) Leave 1/2 inch head space.

Bring water, sugar, and picking salt to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes.

Fill hot clean jars with vinegar mixture. Wipe jar tops. Place lids and screw bands on jars.

Process in boiling water canner for 10 minutes.

Makes 12 pints.

I've also dehydrated a lot of peppers successfully.
