  • Yield: 12 cups


3pounds jalapenos chopped
2large onions chopped
1/2cup white vinegar
1/2cup water

1teaspoon turmeric
1teaspoon celery seeds

I suggest wearing gloves, when chopping peppers. Place peppers & onions in pan with water & vinegar, bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer/steam until tender. Strain, keeping vinegar & water. Return to pot vinegar & water, add suger and spices. Heat to completely dissolve sugar. Return peppers and onions to pot and simmer about 15 minutes. Place relish into sterilized jars, use new lids. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Let sit 24 hours, refridgerate after opening
