"This is a great topping for hot dogs, or even tortilla chips. A great way to use extra pears."

A version of this recipe has been in the family cook book for at least 4 generations. We are incapable of eating pork chops without it! The only differences are that we peel, core and grind the pears raw before cooking. Cooking first might be less time consuming because they would be easier to peel. Also we do not use onions but extra red bell peppers. (They are very attractive in the jars.) For variety, the last batch I made, I added chipoltle peppers. This went over well with this family that usually wants it "just like grandma made."
This is one of the best relishes I've tasted. Is like a hot mustard sauce and is great on everything. (chcken, hamburgers, crackers, pretzels) I can't stop eating it. Have made it all weekend as I had a lot of pears to can. Will make this every year.
Love this relish. Just the right amount of sweet & sour. The only changes I made were to add 1 and a half large red bell peppers which gave it nice color and doubled the jalapeno peppers because mine were milder than usual.
This is similar to the way my grandmother made it. They had a large vegetable garden and would eat it on field peas and butterbeans. As a child, I would not eat these kinds of vegetables without it. She didn't use jalapenos, but I was thinking of adding them anyway. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
