Pepper and Onion Relish

I grew tons of sweet yellow wax peppers and onions this summer and didn't want them to go to waste, so I found this recipe.
I love this kind of "condiment" to add to the table for a flavor zing when serving "Plain" meats like baked chicken or pork chops. It also shows up on our Holiday dinner tables with the more common relishes like Pickles and olives. This one is from the Ball canning book with my own tweaks.
Sharp, Sweet and Savory, as well as Succulent.

How to Make Pepper and Onion Relish

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash, seed, devein and chop peppers and onions, and place them in a large bowl. (This may be done in a food processor by pulsing until chopped. 3/8" dice or so. I prefer the look of hand chopped) Cover with Boiling water and let stand 5 minutes. Drain, Cover again with boiling water and let stand 10 minutes. Drain and reserve til needed.
  2. Tie Spices in several layers of cheesecloth or place in a metal spice infuser (Like a large mesh teaball). Combine spice bag, sugar, vinegar and salt in a large saucepot or Dutch oven and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Add drained vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove spice bag and bring vinegar mixture to a boil.
  4. Pack relish into jars leaving 1/2" headspace. wipe rims, place two piece lids. Process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes. (adjust time for your altitude) Remove jars to kitchen towel lined counter out of any breezes and cover until sealed.
