I’ve been slacking on making condiments, but one I love and wanted to make at home is pepper relish. Living in South Florida, I have access to peppers of many colors and levels of sweetness or heat.
I used bell peppers, but once they get with the sugar and spices, this becomes a sweet relish that is a different take on pickle relish. This recipe is adapted from a few different recipes found online (something I often do to make it my own and customize it to my liking).
- 3 cups mixed peppers, diced
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon mustard seed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 teaspoon celery seed
- Combine all ingredients in a pan on the stove over medium-low heat. Allow to simmer 5 minutes.
- Once cool, put it in an airtight container.
- Let it sit in the refrigerator for a few days to develop flavor. Goes great on burgers and sandwiches.
