Nanny's Pepper Relish

Here's what DH did today... it really turned out pretty, and he and DS will eat it. I won't touch a single bite of it, as I am a tender-mouth and it is VERY HOT!

Nanny's Pepper Relish

6 cups ground hot peppers (cayenne)

4 med. onions, ground

1 head garlic, chopped

1 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons cumin

3 Tablespoons chili powder

1 bottle catsup *

Mix all ingredients well; boil for 5 minutes; put in sterile, hot jars and seal. Makes about 6 pints.

*Now let me explain about the catsup... this recipe was from back in the 60's, when catsup only came in the small glass bottles, the same type you now find on the table in some restaurants. I'm guessing that is about 18 oz. but it really won't matter if you use a little more. We used a 24 oz. bottle because that was what they had on sale last week.

All of these ingredients can be adjusted to taste. Like garlic? Put a lot in, or leave it out if garlic is not your thing. The same is true of the spices.

NOW... what do you DO with this fire-hot stuff? DH likes it on his purplehull peas, butterbeans, etc. DS would just eat it with a spoon... I think he has a cast-iron mouth and GI tract!
