Family Recipe Friday: Sweet Red Pepper Relish

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.

Get Ready!

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

Get Set!

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]
