Spicy Chili Sauce

Spicy Chili Sauce

4 quarts chopped, peeled, cored tomatoes (about 24 large)
1 1/2 cups chopped sweet green peppers (about 3 medium)
2 cups chopped onions (about 2 medium)
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar, 5% acidity
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon cloves
Prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand jars and closures according to instructions found in Canning Basics.

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepot. Bring to boiling; simmer until desired consistency, about 1 to 2 hours. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Carefully ladle hot sauce into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met – fingertip tight.

Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

Yield: about 6 pints.

Note: Chili sauce is not a bright red color because ground spices are used.
