Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound hot green peppers (such as jalapeños or serranos), stemmed, seeds removed for a more mild relish
  • 1/2 pound hot red peppers (such as fresnos or cherry peppers), stemmed, seeds removed for a more mild relish
  • 1/2 pound yellow onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

Directions

  1. Place peppers and onions in workbowl of a food processor fitted with steel blade. Pulse until peppers and onion are finely chopped.

  2. Transfer pepper mixture to a fine mesh strainer set inside a bowl. Stir in salt and let sit for 2-3 hours. Rinse under cold water and strain, pushing vegetables against side of the strainer using a rubber spatula to remove as much water as possible.

  3. In a medium saucepan, bring vinegar and sugar to a boil over medium high heat, stirring to dissolve to sugar. Add in pepper mixture, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Transfer relish to an airtight container and store in refrigerator up to a month.
