This is the second version of my roast pepper relish, the one I will be storing for winter. It takes a bit more time to make than the first one, but it's definitely worth it! I'm not giving exact quantities, because I usually make huge batches for the winter, with 10-12 kg peppers. Of course, you can just make a little bit to see if you like it and eat it straight away.
1 part eggplant
4 parts red peppers
chili peppers (optional)
Roast the vegetables until the peppers' skin blisters. Peel the vegetables and remove the seeds from the peppers. Run everything through a food grinder. I guess you could use a blender as well, but that's tricky - it shouldn't be too chunky, but it shouldn't be a paste either. Add salt and chilies to taste (I use 100 g of salt for a batch of 6 l already peeled and ground veggies - that's 3.5 oz). Add oil - 80 ml per kg of relish (that's 1/3 cup per 2 pints). Cook on stove top or in the oven for 30 minutes.
Ladle hot relish into hot sterilized jars. Adjust lids and rings. Cover with a dish towel until you hear the tops pop. Refrigerate after opening.
