I was at Central Market a few weeks ago. They often have snacks set out for tasting, and this time they had some sweet pepper relish. It was awesome. I wanted to eat the entire bowl right there.
However, I couldn’t bring myself to buy a jar of the stuff. Six bucks is too much for me when it comes to a dip. Plus a quick peek at the ingredients let me know that I had everything I needed at home to make it.
- 4 San Marzano, or Roma tomatoes, peeled and chopped
- 5 sweet peppers, seeded and chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup vinegar
- 1 tsp salt
- dash cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp garlic
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- Combine all ingredients in a pot and cook on low, stirring often, until peppers and tomatoes have broken down and mixture has thickened. Pour into a container and let cool to thicken more. Store in fridge.
