- 12 pounds firm pears (about 40, peeled, cored, quartered)
- 2 green bell peppers (seeded and quartered)

- 4 cups sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons whole mixed pickling spice

Using a food grinder, grind the pears, bell peppers, and onions together.
Put the ground mixture in a colander to drain off all excess liquid.
In a large nonreactive kettle, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, pickling spices, and turmeric in a large kettle. Boil 10 minutes.
Add the ground fruit and vegetables to the kettle and bring to a boil. Boil 15 minutes.
Spoon the relish into hot sterilized jars and seal quickly.
