Sweet Pepper Relish


     We have been harvesting a lot of fresh veggies this past week.  I love eating fresh vegetables but when you have a big garden like we do, you couldn’t possibly eat them all before they go bad.  What to do?  We can them.  Fresh tomatoes are canned whole, stewed and diced or made into marinara sauce, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, relish, or jam.  

       Bellpeppers are cut up and some are frozen and others are canned into relishes.  There are so many possibilities.  One thing we make and can every year is sweet pepper relish.  It tastes so good on summer hot dogs.  Here is my recipe for sweet pepper relish that we love.

Sweet Pepper Relish
3 green bell peppers                                               3 red bell peppers
3 yellow bell peppers                                              3 orange bell peppers
2 yellow onions                                                        1 ½ c. apple cider vinegar
1 T. pickling salt                                                     1 T. celery seed
1 ½ c. sugar                                                              2 T. crushed or minced garlic

    Wash the bell peppers and remove the seeds.  Dice the peppers and onions.  Put all ingredients into a large pot, stir well and let it come to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Let it boil for 27 minutes and then remove from heat and pour into sterilized jars.  Leave about ½” room at the top.  Wipe off rims well.  Seal the jars and process them for 15 minutes.  This will make about 7 half pint jars or 4 pint jars.
