My do nothing Labor Day just didn't happen, well not until about 3:00 in the afternoon. There is always something to do this time of year. I'll rest in the winter when it's too cold to be out.
I know I've been on a chutney kick, but this is sooo good and so easy a monkey could make it. This is what I'm making today. I would eat this on anything, plus what a beautiful hostess gift.
Makes 3 pints
12 sweet red peppers, seeded
1 tablespoon salt
1 pint cider vinegar
2 3/4 cup sugar
In a meat grinder, or food processor, grind the peppers. Add the salt, and let stand for 3 hours. Drain, and rinse with boiling water.
In a large saucepan, heat the vinegar and sugar. Add the peppers, and cook for at least 1 hour, or until the mixture is thick. Place in hot sterilized jars. Process in hot water canner for 10 minutes.
