This is an old family recipe from my grandmother from when Chili Sauce had nothing to do with chili, hot peppers, etc. It is a relish which is excellent on hot dogs, brats, any roasted or grilled pork. I am posting it with the assumption that you are familiar with water bath canning. If you need further specifics on preparing jars or the water bath canner, checking for a seal, etc., check out the Ball canning website which will give you all the specific information you need.
