Ingredients And Procedures
1/2cupjalapeno peppers, stems/seeds removed
1lgred bell pepper, stem/seeds removed
2cupcider vinegar
1/2cupapricots, dried and chopped
6cupsugar 3 oz liquid pectin
4eachdrops red food color


Put jalapenos, bell pepper, and vinegar in blender. Puree 'til coarsely
ground and small chunks remain.

Combine apricots, sugar, and jalapeno/pepper/vinegar mixture in large
saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil rapidly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; skim
off any foam that forms.

Allow mixture to cool for 2 minutes. Then mix in pectin (and food coloring
if you're going to use it).

Pour into sterilized jars, seal, and cool. (I processed in a boiling water
bath for 10 minutes.)

Yield: 3 pints (I got 7 half pint containers.)

This recipe calls for apricots but peaches, nectarines, and pears work equally well. Any fresh green chile can also be substituted, depending on your heat preference. Serranos will make it hotter; roasted, peeled New Mexican chiles will tame it down.
