  • 6 large pears
  • 3 large onions
  • 3 large bell peppers red & green
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • 3 cups sugar
  • Chopped Jalapenos to taste I used 2 chopped


  1. Peel and quarter pears, seed peppers, peel onions.

  2. Grate pears, peppers, onions and jalapenos with a food chopper. (Or pulse in food processor but careful to pulse just long enough to shred ingredients. Don't puree the vegetables unless that's the texture you're after)

  3. Place all ingredients into large stock pot and bring to boil. (Stir often, it will stick to bottom of pot.) Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced & thick.

  4. Ladle into sterilized canning jars, screw on canning lids and water-bath can for 20 minutes)
