I make this when my tomatoes are ripe. It only makes 1 pint so it is very quick and easy. Great to serve with meat. Even if you don't can very often this is something that is easy and fast to do.

I tell you what, this could also be marketed as a _sinus clearer_ because the fumes while it's cooking are potent! I have not breathed this freely in years. :-) DH, the heat and horseradish lover in the family, gave this 2 thumbs up! To please his palate, I went all in with the cayenne using the full 1/2 tsp. Since it made such a small amount and I knew it would quickly be eaten, I didn't bother with the canning process and will store it in the fridge for it's short life. Thanks for a great recipe!
