Before we rolled up our sleeves and tackled the house we had to contend with frost warnings. After a flurry of pepper picking I had to do something with them so they didn’t go to waste. Because we have a lot of hot peppers, jalapeno relish sounded like a good idea.
Not only was a it a good idea it is a really quick relish to make when you list is long. In fact it is faster to do it than this post! I followed this recipe for the most part to make my relish.
This is all done in the food processor. I sliced about 12 jalapenos and 1-2 Ring O Fire peppers. I figured I was going to make this really hot for my husband. I keep trying with the heat but while he enjoys the hot stuff I make it doesn’t seem to blow him away like it does me. He likes things spicy!
Add 4-5 cloves of garlic, half a small onion, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp sea salt, 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar, and a large handful of cilantro.
Pulse away until you get the consistency you want. Freeze or can the extra relish.
And yes this blew him away. 🙂 Finally! It’s hot enough to use sparingly on dishes.
