Spicy Pepper, Garlic, and Apple Relish [Food Processor Attachment]

Honey and apples lend a little natural sweetness to this spicy pepper relish. Add pectin for an easy spicy pepper jam. The more seeds you leave in the peppers, the spicier it will be.


  • 10 (150 g) fresno chili
  • 2 (100 g) jalapeños, stemmed, seeded
  • 10 (135 g) shishito peppers, stemmed, halved
  • ½ cup (75 g) garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 (225 g) honeycrisp apple, cored, cut into large chunks
  • 1 piece (3 g) fresh ginger root, 1/4" slice
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) honey


  1. Fit the Food Processor with the Multi-Use Blade.  Place peppers, garlic, apple and ginger into the Vitamix container and secure the lid.
  2. Pulse 6-8 times. Stop and remove the lid and scrape down the sides of the Work Bowl. Pulse an additional 3-4 times.
  3. Heat a medium sauce pot over medium heat. Add the 2 Tablespoon olive oil and heat slightly. Add the pepper mixture and sauté for 5-7 minutes, making sure mixture doesn't stick to bottom of pan. Add rice vinegar and honey, and stew over low heat for 15-20 minutes.
