DIRECTIONS

  • This recipe requires a lot of prep work; I recommend you prepare it with a friend and split the bounty!
  • Have ready a large preserving kettle.
  • Peel tomatoes, seed, and dice; place in kettle.
  • Peel pears, core, and slice 1/4 inch thick; place in kettle.
  • Peel peaches, remove pit, and slice 1/4 inch thick; place in kettle.
  • Peel and finely chop onions; place in kettle.
  • Remove seeds from red peppers and dice; place in kettle.
  • Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil; let mixture simmer (NOT a gentle simmer) until it is thick; this will take two to three hours.
  • Stir frequently.
  • Discard spice bag and ladle relish into prepared, hot sterilized canning jars and seal.
  • My mother-in-law never processed this, and neither do I; if you can it in pint jars and want to process it; I recommend a 10-minute boiling water bath.
