Steps to Make It

Prepare the Peppers and Onions

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Wash the peppers, slice them in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds and ribs. Cut the peppers into large chunks—when done you should have about 6 pounds of chunks.
  3. Finely chop about 1/2 to 2/3 of the peppers.
  4. Grind or finely chop the remaining amount of peppers using a food grinder or food processor.
  5. Coarsely chop about half of the onions.
  6. Add the remaining onions to the grinder or food processor with the peppers.
  7. In a large bowl, combine the chopped and ground peppers and onions with the salt. Toss to mix thoroughly, cover the mixture with abundant ice, and let stand for 3 hours in the refrigerator.

Cook the Relish

  1. Drain and rinse the bell pepper and onion mixture, squeezing the vegetables with your hands to get as much moisture out as possible.
  2. In a large nonreactive pot, combine the two kinds of vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, and paprika, if using. Add the well-drained pepper mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 50 to 60 minutes, until thickened. Stir occasionally.

Can the Relish

  1. In a saucepan, bring water to a simmer, turn to low and add the flat lids. Keep the lids in hot water until you’re ready to use them.
  2. Fill a bath canning kettle about half full with water. Add the canning jars to the water and bring to a boil. Carefully remove the jars and drain.
  3. Ladle the pepper mixture into the hot drained jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. With a damp clean cloth, wipe any spills or drips from the threads and rims of the jars.
  4. Using tongs, lift lids from the water and let any excess drip off of them. Place the clean jar rims on. Screw on the jar rings firmly but not too tightly.
  5. Place the filled jars into the canner. The water should be at least 1 inch above the jars. Bring the water to a boil, cover, and boil gently for 10 minutes.
  6. Carefully, remove the jars to a rack to cool.
  7. Once cool, check for seals. If any jars did not seal, refrigerate the relish and use it within the next three months. Label the jars with an expiration date of 12 months in the future. Keep in a cool dry place for up to 12 months.
  8. Enjoy!
