Harry &David Copycat Red & Hot Pepper &Onion Relish Recipe

This yummy Harry & David Sweet and Hot Pepper and Onion Relish is so good served on cream cheese with crackers or chips. It make a lovely gift and friends will be asking for more.

Ingredients needed for Harry & David Pepper and Onion Relish Copycat Recipe:

6 cups tomatoes, skinned, diced and drained

6 large red peppers, diced, or multiple colors

8 cups sugar

2 tablespoons salt

2 boxes pectin (1.75 ounce each)

3 cups white vinegar

1 teaspoon ground red pepper

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

5 large jalapeño peppers, seeded and diced

1 large jalapeño pepper, diced with seeds

3 large onions, diced

Directions for making Harry & David Pepper and Onion Relish Copycat Recipe:

Step 1: Mix all ingredients together, except pectin and bring to a boil.

Step 2: Turn down and simmer for 2 - 2 1/2 hours until thickened.

Step 3: Whisk in the 2 boxes of pectin and boil for 1 minute.

Step 4: Pour into sterile jars leaving ½-inch head space.

Step 4: Process in pressure canner at #11 for 15 minutes.


For the faint heart, you can remove seeds from jalapeños and cut down the amount; reduce amounts of ground red pepper and crushed red pepper, when doing this you may need to cut back on the sugar.

For those that like it hot be a little generous on the heat because it seems to leave the product after canning. Some add as many as 10 jalapeños.

Also, in using the 8 cups of sugar you need the hot peppers to balance out the sweet.
