12 large peppers (green and red bell, mixed), ground (5.5 cups)
3 medium white onions, ground (1 cup or so)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. uniodized salt
1.5 Tbsp. mustard seed (that's SEED, not ground or prepared)
1 cup apple cider vinegar
cheesecloth for draining
A great relish to add a little zing to your hot dog.
Yield: 6 half-pint jars
Place peppers and onions in a large bowl. Pour boiling water over them to cover. Cover with a large lid and let stand for 20 mins.
Drain well using a colander and two layers of cheesecloth. Dump the peppers and onions into a large, stainless stockpot. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 12 to 15 mins.
Seal at once in hot sterilized jars. Process in a boiling water bath for approx. 30 mins. Makes 6 half-pint jars (You could put it in pint jars if you're a real relish fiend. I do it in half pints - it's relish. Who wants to keep a whole pint of relish in the fridge once it's open?)
