Pickled Pepper and Onion Relish

Recipe by  

"This recipe is great on anything that you would put relish on. It's great on brats, hotdogs, and hamburgers. The ingredients are very simple and consist of bell peppers and onions. Great for using up all those end of the season peppers. If you like it hot, you can add jalapeno peppers for a little spice."

I am preparing this just to serve as a side for a hot dog grill party, I was wondering if I still need to heat it for 30 minutes even though I'm not canning it, or if it will be fine to just serve it?

I made this recipe and after sampling it wished I had only put 2 T of pickling spice in it. Way too much corriander seed, so it overwhelmed the star of the recipe...peppers and onions! To save the relish I added 3 cups of diced cherry tomatoes. For a great dip, mix the altered relish with cream cheese and serve with crackers or tortilla chips.

This is a nice recipe. I followed it to pickle my end-of-season peppers from my garden. I used mostly cherry peppers, Anaheim and jalapeño peppers, mixed in with some red bell pepper, finger carrots and lots of onions. Thanks for the recipe!

Excellent!! Everyone loved it. I used a homemade pickling spice recipe that I had. I added it to allrecipes just in case anyone else was interested.

I was happy with the results but wondered if the pickling spices will soften up or if they should have gone into a cheese clothe bag & removed after cooking? Also this recipe doubled makes 7 pint jars.

Made this wonderful relish yesterday from garden grown peppers and it came out fantastic! After canning, we had a little extra left over so we fired up the grill and made some burgers and put the relish on them and YUMMM! I added 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 light brown sugar. Thanks for a great recipe! rs

This was a good recipe. Recipe yielded less for me than stated, but that wasn't a problem. As well, you need to add a lot of hot peppers if you want to spice it up. I added 6 jalapeno peppers, and couldn't even taste them. I like things spicy, so if I make it again, I might try replacing all the bell peppers with jalapeno's. We use it on every burger and dog this summer so far, and will have to make more soon!
