Hot Pepper Relish

I have been canning up a storm. Its the consequence of being given over 20 lbs of cucumbers on top of all the produce already purchased for canning! No complaints here because now I have a years supply of relish and pickles put up! I will post some of my pickle recipes another night, but here is my hot pepper relish!

RECIPE: Hot Pepper Relish

Cutting Board
Measuring Cup

5 Cups Jalapeno
5 Cups Banana Peppers
1 1/2 Cups Onion

2 Cups Sugar
4 teaspoons Sea Salt
4 teaspoons Mustard Seeds

Remove the stems from the peppers, but keep all the seeds!
2) Process each type of pepper separately in the food processor. Use a spatula to move the processed peppers to a measuring cup and then into the large pot on the stove.
3) Remove the skins from the onion and process just like the peppers.
4) Measure the vinegar, sugar, salt, and mustard seed and add it into the pot.
5) Sterilize and heat your jars in a pot of boiling water.

  1. Fabulous! The jars look so pretty, but I have a question. When you process each type of pepper, do your eyes burn, or are you working outside?


    1. When it comes to working with hot peppers, I am all about the personal protective equipment. For this recipe, not only did I use gloves while processing the peppers, I also wore lab goggles. They keep you from feeling like you are being pepper sprayed during the processing portion, and you get the bonus of feeling like a mad scientist in the kitchen!
