How do I make it ?
REMOVE stems and seeds from peppers. Cut into chunks and dice in a blender or food processor. Place peppers in a fine sieve or cheesecloth and drain off the juice to make 1 cup.
MEASURE juice, sugar, butter, vinegar and if desired, 2 to 3 drops of Tobasco, into a medium saucepan.
PLACE on high heat and bring quickly to a boil. If desired add red food colouring as mixture heats.
BRING mixture to a boil and stir in liquid pectin. Bring to a full boil again and boil 1 minute stirring constantly.
SKIM off any foam and pour immediately into warm sterilized jars.
SEAL while hot with sterilized 2-piece lids with new centres.
