I made this today using 5% acidity white vinegar and a combination of garden fresh green and purple bell peppers. The fruit and vegetable combination was cooked for approximately 30 minutes. I could see that by using a combination of green, yellow and red would make a beautiful presentation. Made this in the Fall of 2011 for PAC and have been eating on it for quite a while. Have been forgetting to come back and add my star rating. This stuff is awesome. We really enjoy it as an accompaniment to grilled hot dogs as well as beans and cornbread. Thanks JQ for a wonderful recipe.
This is delicious and a great way to use up pears! It is great with barbeque chicken and pork. I've made a lot to give as Christmas gifts. Thanks for posting!
