1/2 cup jalapeno peppers -- stems and seeds removed
1 large red bell pepper -- stem and seeds removed
2 cups cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups dried apricots -- chopped
6 cups sugar
3 ounces liquid pectin
4 drops red food color

Preparation / Directions:

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.) Gerlach also wrote: "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 do
