The other day my Dad brought over some hot peppers from his garden. Lots of them!
So this weekend I decided to make some Hot Pepper Relish. We love anything hot. It's very hot but so good, we like to take wheat crackers add some cream cheese and top it off with a little pepper relish. Even my daughter likes it.
Here's the recipe if you would like to try it.
Hot Pepper Relish
2 qt. Hot peppers, finely chopped (remove some seeds)
2 cups sugar
2 cups vinegar
Combine peppers and salt, let stand 3 to 4 hours. Add sugar and vinegar, cook, stirring frequently, about 45 minutes. Pour into hot jars leaving 1/4" head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
**Note: If you don't like extremely hot, use 1 quart hot peppers with 1 quart finely chopped sweet red peppers. You can substitute to fit your taste.
***PLEASE wear gloves when chopping peppers, I forgot until I had already started and my fingers were hurting later that night. :-)***
