Step-step making Recipes easy to make Hot Pepper Relish

  1. Full disclosure: you can use any peppers or pepper combination you want, green pepper, red pepper, banana, cayenne, habenaro, whatever tickles your tastebuds. This recipe is flexible, just hold to the ratios of overall pepper content to vinegar/sugar/seasoning and create the heat level you like.

  2. Start by prepping your peppers. No seeds allowed. You are going to process these in your food processor so don’t worry about chopping.

  3. Once every seed has been accounted for, prep your onion by peeling and quartering.

  4. Pulse the onion once or twice in food processor and dump ground onion into a 5 quart or bigger pot. Do not process the onion with the peppers or you will have onion water and no one wants that.

  5. Process the peppers and dump them in the pot with the onion.

  7. Next add sugar and vinegar.

  9. Bring to a boil and babysit this madness. It foams and bubbles like crazy so do not leave unattended. You may need to remove from heat a couple times to let the foam settle. Once it’s at a boil, reduce to a simmer and let it cook down for 30 minutes.
