I was excited to see this recipe and realize that everything I needed was in the garden. I added a few different types of peppers (I suggest you wear gloves when chopping them- lesson learned). I made half the recipe with fresh oregano and half with cilantro. Very different taste to each, but delicious. Took two jars on a family vacation- they were gone in one night. Yummy! Thanks for sharing.
Great stuff, we consumed half a jar in one sitting and my DH asked me to make another batch, so we would have plenty for the winter. To be honest i guestimated the amount of tomtoes and peppers. I used fresh cayenne peppers ,so i had to be cautious adding theses as they are really hot.
I made this for PAC Spring '07. It was a bit time consuming seeding & chopping 2lbs of jalapenos. I was worried the food processor might nearly puree the veggies so I chopped by hand. It looked lovely & smelled wonderful. I have yet to taste it, tho. I got 6 pints. I used fresh oregano. I didn't use all the vinegar/water - I hope that is ok. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
I canned this recipe and gave them in gift baskets for Christmas. It was wonderful. The sweetness and the oregano took everyone by surprise. I used mexican oregano and I changed the ratio of peppers and tomatoes using more peppers. Thanks so much for a great recipe. I'll be canning it again soon
I made this approx 6 weeks ago, it is really tasty & has a lovely clean fresh taste. The only thing I would say is that it needs more herbs, but that is just personal preference. I tasted some just prior to bottling, it was nice but tastes better having been left to mellow & mature. Next time I make this I might use some spiced vinegar to give the flavours a bit of a lift. Thanks!
This was very good and easy to make. Other than seeding the tomatoes and peppers I did not change a thing. It's great. Thanks so much for a nice recipe.
I spotted your lovely photo the other day and having tons of tomatoes and peppers, I decided to give this a try. The veggies were chopped using the food processor making this such an easy recipe to prepare. The oregano was a different twist than the usual cilantro but added to the wonderful flavor of the relish. My yield was 6 pints. This recipe is definitely a keeper for me. Thanks for sharing your family recipe.
Okay my theory was wrong.....so I guess it is written correctly? I just don't know why there is 4 1/2 cups of liquid to add to less then 1/2 inch headspace on what wound up to be 3 pints of veggies.......maybe I'm new to all this and I have no clue how to fix it and have lost nearly 5 lbs of veggies in the process.
