    Is this similar to the Harry and David pepper relish? I love that stuff on steaks or burgers.

    not quite the same

    here is a the harry & david one mine is has no tomatoes or pectin which make the harry and david one kinda like a jelly.




    HARRY & DAVID Red Pepper Onion Relish

    6 cups tomatoes, skinned, diced and drained
    6 large red peppers diced (I used multiple colors from garden)
    8 cups sugar
    2 TBSP salt
    2 small boxes pectin
    3 cups white vinegar
    1 tsp ground red pepper
    2 jalapenos seeded and diced
    3 large onions diced

    1. Mix all ingredients together, except pectin and bring toa boil.
    2. Turn down and simmer for 2 - 2 1/2 hours until thickened
    3. Whisk in the 2 boxes of pectin and boil for 1 minute.
    4. Pour into sterile jars
    5. Process in pressure canner at #11 for 15 minutes
    Notes

    I increased the peppers and the ground red. I actually used scotch hots and it still lost some of the heat in the canning process. This always happens to me! Go ahead and be a little generous on the heat because it seems to leave the product after canning. Also, in using the 8 cups of sugar, you need the hot pepper to balance out the sweet.


    I did not pressure can. I water-boiled for 10 minutes. They all set up perfectly.

    It was a success. Tasted great, just wish it was a little spicier. I added cayenne to my cream cheese mixture.
