A recipe from the farm in Ford River. They would take this and sell at a Farmer's Market, along with maple syrup, flowers, and all the best produce grown. It is a 1940's recipe.
- 12 large tomatoes, peeled
- 6 large sweet onions
- 2 green peppers
- 2 red bell peppers
- 1 1⁄2 cups apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablspoon black pepper (carefully)
- 3 tablespoons kosher salt
- Grind the tomatoes, peppers, and onion in a meat grinder.
- Put all the ingredients in a large canning pot.
- Bring to a boil and boil 20 minutes.
- Put in 8-1/2 pint jars and seal.
Unfortunately, this recipe had very little flavor for me. I did take the suggestion to add some sugar/cinnamon/cloves and that made it better. I also then added some cayenne to give it some punch.EDIT: 1/19/08 I opened a jar of this today and had on crackers. I must say the original flavors have increased--it's much more flavorful now--I'd now give it 4 stars.
I really enjoyed this recipe. I canned it this fall and couldn't stay out of it while it was cooking...lol. I kept dipping some crusty bread left over from the night before. Yummy, this tastes great with chicken or pork. delicious chili sauce thank you so much for this simple recipe....Stephanie
This is a delicious recipe! I love that I can use it as is, as a salsa or savory chili sauce, or add some sugar and cinnamon and cloves and make a sweet chili sauce! Very good flavors. I used medium tomatoes, 1 green pepper, but only had about 1/2 of a red pepper. I used medium red onions and got about 3 1/2 pints. Thank you so much for posting Rose!
