  • Portion size 75 servings

Ingredients

  • 20 tomatoes peeled and chopped
  • 6 onions chopped
  • 3 peaches peeled, pitted and chopped (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 3 apples peeled, cored and chopped (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 1 sweet red pepper chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1/4 cup pickling spice
  • 2 cups cider vinegar

Method

In large Dutch oven, combine tomatoes, onions, peaches, apples, red pepper, salt and cayenne pepper. Bring to boil, stirring often; reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until reduced by half, 1-1/2 hours.

Tie pickling spice in double-thickness square of cheesecloth to make spice bag; add to pot along with vinegar and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to mound on spoon, about 2 hours. Remove spice bag.
