We are canning Sweet Pepper Relish
I have been busy getting the garden put to bed here in Wisconsin Zone 4-5 after two really hard freezes.
I have a few buckets of beautiful peppers to make sweet pepper relish with .
This is the same recipe my Grandmother Nonie would use . It is amazing poured over a chicken and then baked .
Sweet Pepper Relish
30 peppers any color any variety. 3 lg. White onions 1 qt. apple cider vinegar 2 c. sugar 3 Tbsp. salt 1 cup brown sugar 4 Tbsp. molasses
Remove seeds from peppers and cut into halves. Place them into your food processor or chop very fine . Do the same with the onions,
Combine all ingredients into an large pot and simmer until thick . This is were I may begin to taste and tweak it a bit .
I usually double or triple my recipe and let it simmer all night. It will resemble barbeque sauce when finished.
I sometimes freeze it in Ziplocs but this season I have caned it in my Ball Canning Jars.
Try this poured over the top of chicken and then baked you will love it and add it to your have to do list every year.
