Ingredients

  • 18 quarts tomatoes
  • 2 bunches celery
  • 3 quarts banana peppers
  • 10 red peppers
  • 12 onions
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup coarse salt
  • 4 cups vinegar
  • 4 peaches
  • 2.5 lbs brown sugar
  • 2 tsps. cayenne pepper
  • 3 tsps. cloves
  • 3 tsps. cinnamon
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 10 whole cloves

Instructions

  • Peel tomatoes by placing them in boiling water for 30 seconds and then plunging them into cold water. The skin will slide right off.  If it doesn't, plunge them in the hot water again.
  • Wrap all the whole spices in a little cheesecloth bag.
  • Rough chop the remaining ingredients.  Don't worry about it being pretty, just chop them up into pieces between 1/4" - 1/2".
  • Put all the ingredients into a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and simmer until thick and reduced by 1/3rd.  This will take many hours.
