Kitchenette Style Chili Sauce and Life Stuff
It's been over a month since I posted last and we have had a lot going on! Mona and I tied the knot September 23rd and the next weekend Leah (my sis) and Matt got hitched.
Mona and I were able to travel to my home, Mississippi, and celebrate with friends and family at Freedom Farm. Both our weddings were sweet and simple and I sure hope life continues to be as sweet and simple as it is now.
The recipe is deceiving. The title says "chili" but it's more like a relish. I made it not knowing exactly what kind of concoction I would end up with. I did have a large amount of relish and no way to can it at the moment. I served it on top of some green beans and meatballs and I enjoyed it. I still have a lot of it so I froze some for another day. This will not be a go to recipe, but my plan is to try all of Mamaw's recipes. I'm sure I will have a few that don't suit my fancy, but maybe you'll like it!
Kitchenette Style Chili Sauce
2 quarts of tomatoes
1 red or green sweet pepper
1 cup vinegar
1/2 to 1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon mixed spice
Salt to taste
Peel onion; remove seeds from pepper; chop; mix all ingredients except spices and vinegar; boil until thick; add spices (tied in bag) and vinegar. Boil until is thick as wanted. Enjoy!
I posted this recipe to get help on what Mamaw meant by add spices "tied in bag". I received a lot of advice and instructions. I used cheese cloth to make a bag for the spices and I think it worked well. I wasn't sure what all Mamaw would have used for the "mixed" spices i just picked a good variety of spices I like.
