DIRECTIONS

  • Get a big pot, really big, 10 quarts or bigger.
  • Mix ingredients together and simmer uncovered on low.
  • The tomatoes will break down on their own, but you can use a potato masher and/or immersion blender if a very smooth relish is desired.
  • Stir often, it can burn on the bottom. Stir with a spatula to help prevent sticking and burning.
  • Reduce until it reaches the consistency of applesauce. It will turn a nice dark red and be somewhat translucent. The recipe said 2-3 hours, I cooked it for 6.
  • To preserve, ladle relish in to prepared, hot jars leaving at least 1/4 inch head space.
  • Process in boiling water bath for 20 minute (adjust for altitude).
