Recipe by Jellyqueen
READY IN: 40mins




  • Wash peppers and place in blender with vinegar.
  • Blend until peppers are ground fine.
  • In a saucepan, combine pepper/vinegar combination with salt and water.
  • Cook until peppers are tender.
  • Strain through cheesecloth and return liquid to large boiler.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, turmeric, dry mustard and mustard.
  • Stir well, making a paste.
  • Add to boiler and cook over low heat until everything is blended well.
  • Slowly bring up to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • It will stick if it is not stirred constantly.
  • It will thicken as soon as it gets to a boil.
  • Turn off and dip into prepared jars.
  • Be sure to wipe rim of jars completely clean with warm towel and place preheated lids on jars and tighten rings.
  • I use the inversion method of sealing the lids which is to turn upside down for 5 minutes.
  • Many think this is unsafe, so there is no harm in processing in a water bath for 5 to 10 minutes if it will make you feel a little more comfortable.
  • Turn upright after 5 minutes and allow to cool completely before moving.
