I can’t wait for August. Yesterday I finished my last jar of Aunt Virginia’s Sweet Red Pepper Relish. I”ll have to put up the full recipe this year instead of cutting it in half like I did the last time.
Recipe for Sweet Red Pepper Relish made annually by Virginia (Woodward) Smith
Sterilize 24 pint jars and lids
20 medium-size onions
20 medium-size green peppers
20 medium-size red peppers
1 quart vinegar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons salt
2¾ cups sugar
Put peppers and onions through food chopper, using coarse grinder. Cover with boiling water.
Let stand 5 minutes. Drain. Cover with boiling water again, let stand another 5 minutes, and drain.
Add sugar, vinegar, and salt. Boil mixture 15 minutes.
Pack in jars and seal.
[In addition, I give the jars a ten-minute hot water bath]
yield: 24 pints
