Per tradition we always do peaches. They are a family favorite, we have an ample supply because of Grandma's fruit trees and they are the most YUMMY. But also every year we try and do a tomato based sum'in sum'in. Stewed tomatoes, Spaghetti sauce, Salsa...
This year is was Chili Sauce.
We got the recipe by one of Dad's old buddies Greg Amidan
6 Lg Onions
4 green Bell Peppers
2 red Bell Peppers
20 large Tomatoes
1/4 cup McCormick Pickling Spice ground finely in blender
1 cup Cider Vinegar
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp Salt
1 tsp white pepper
Peel and quarter onions and pulse in food processor about 10 pulses.
Quarter and seed peppers and pulse in food processor about 10 pulses.
Place all veggies and pickling spices in a large stainless steel stock pot bring to a boil stirring every 10 minutes.
Boil exactly one hour continue stirring every 10 minutes.
Add vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper stir well and boil for another hour or until thickened.
Put into hot sterile jars, wipe rim with clean wet cloth, and add sterile flats and put rings on as tightly as you can.
Process in cold pack canner for 45 min for quarts 35 min for pints.
Enjoy on cream cheese with crackers, or with tortilla chips or use as an ingredient in sweet chili or over a crock pot roast. ENJOY.
We ended up with something like 7 quarts, 25 pints and about 6 half pints.
all things averaged out I would guess each batch does about 10 pint jars...
