HOT RELISH

Another old Southern Indiana recipe.

12 hot peppers
12 green tomatoes
12 cups red and/or green bell peppers
12 onions
3 cups sugar
3 tsp salt
2 cups cider vinegar

Grind vegetables. (In today's modern kitchen this can be done with a food processor.) Place in a large colander and run water over the mixture for 5 minutes.

Bring the sugar, vinegar, and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Place the vegetable mixture in a large saucepan or a stockpot. Pour the boiling sugar mixture over the vegetable mixture. Cook over medium heat until very hot but not to a hard boil, stirring occasionally. Place in pint jars, attach canning lids and seals tightly. Be sure jars seal (they should make a popping sounds and/or the center of the lid will indent slightly.)

Makes 6 pints.
