Alice Arber, my dear Mother-in-Law and Barbara Arber, my dear sister-in-law made this relish for years. My husband, Dave and I got hooked on it. I now make this every year as a Christmas gift for Dave. And we have another younger generation loving it now,

I've been making this for years. It is super-easy and absolutely delicious. I let the peppers and onions sit in the boiling water for 15 minutes before straining, then add other ingredients directly to them, and boil for 30 minutes. Recipe is easy to halve or quarter if you don't want to make such a big batch.
